BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Ty Armstrong scored 18 points to lead six East Carolina players in double figures in a 91-85 victory over Alabama-Birmingham in a Conference USA game Wednesday night.

Maurice Kemp scored 17 points, Paris Campbell had 16, Miguel Paul and Akeem Richmond 12 each, and Robert Sampson 10. Those five all scored during a 12-2 run midway through the second half that gave East Carolina a 63-56 lead.
