GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — This week’s Sports Talk podcast is about all things East Carolina University.
We focus on the success so far this season for the East Carolina women’s basketball team. Head coach Kim McNeill talks about how things have been going so far for the Pirates.
McNeill talks about the season and why she feels her women have been playing at such a high level. Danae McNeal a senior guard, has been named American Athletic Conference Player two weeks in a row. Freshman forward Amiya Joyner, a Farmville Central High grad, is up there with a few accolades herself.
