Recap: East Carolina , Rice
Date: February 26, 2011 8:00 PM EDT
  

HOUSTON (AP) - Jontae Sherrod knocked down a deep 3-pointer with 2.3 seconds to play Saturday to lift East Carolina to a 71-68 victory over Rice.

Sherrod's shot was one of 14 3-pointers for the Pirates (15-13, 7-7 Conference USA), with most of those coming at key junctures.

Rice (12-16, 4-10) battled back from a 10-point halftime deficit to pull within 50-48 with 12:59 remaining. But back-to-back 3-pointers by Jamar Abrams and Sherrod later extended the Pirates' lead to 58-49.

Abrams had 18 points and Sherrod 17 for East Carolina, which attempted 27 3-pointers in the game.

Tamir Jackson led Rice with 18 points, and Kuipers had 15. Arsalan Kazemi added 13 points and 11 rebounds.
