ECSU Struggles Offensively in 2010 Finale
December 19, 2010
ELIZABETH CITY, NC - The Elizabeth City State University Vikings suffered their second setback of the season, dropping a 64-55 decision to Washington Adventist University Sunday afternoon at the RL Vaughan Center.
The Vikings were their own worst enemy in Sunday’s contest missing many point blank opportunities, thus were unable to keep pace with the Shock. ECSU matched season lows in field goals with 18 shots made and points scored with 55. The Vikings were 18-67 from the floor for a season low 26% while their point total equals the output in their first loss of the season to Central State University on December 4th.
ECSU also shot a season low from the free throw line converting 12 of 26 attempts in the nine point defeat. Turnovers were also an issue for the home team as ECSU committed a season high 16 miscues which the Shock (2-8) converted into 15 points. Washington Adventist also outscored the Vikings 12-3 in fast break points.
WAU placed four in double figures and was led by Daray Hill’s double-double of 16 points and 12 rebounds.
Quintin Spady and Paul Goldsmith were the only Vikings in double figures scoring 13 and 10 points, respectively.
ECSU (5-2) will return to action on January 3 in Charlotte, NC when they take on the University of the District of Columbia. Tipoff is scheduled for 1:30 pm at the Time Warner Arena. For more information on ECSU Athletics, visit www.ecsuvikings.com.
