CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Miguel Paul scored 18 points and Darrius Morrow 15 as East Carolina overcame a 27-point performance by Appalachian State's Jamaal Trice for a 67-47 victory Tuesday night.

Trice made 8 of 14 shots, but the rest of the Mountaineers (2-2) made only 6 of 30. They also were ineffective at the free-throw line, converting just 52 percent (13 of 25) of their chances.

Twenty-two of Trice's points came in the second half, after the Pirates (3-1) had taken a 30-17 halftime lead. East Carolina never led by less than 11 points in the second half.

Paul, a junior guard who transferred from Missouri, and Shamarr Bowden hit back-to-back 3-pointers that increased the Pirates' lead to 10 points, 25-15, with 4:36 left in the first half. Paul made 3 of 4 from 3-point range.

The neutral-site game at Time Warner Cable Arena was considered a home game for Appalachian State.
