Think about this. ECU is a college town where the closest major sports team

is roughly 240 miles away. The main athletic draw will always be ECU athletics. I came to ECU in 1981 the number of undergrad students was 14,500. Today we are approaching nearly 30,000 kids while the population of Greenville has doubled. If you want to see live sports without having to drive nearly 4 hours the only game in town remains ECU. With that said we do not draw 4,000 per game. Those numbers have not changed in nearly 40 years. Until basketball becomes a priority among the students and alumni ECU basketball will remain a joke. Sorry the truth hurts. Kids do not want to play in an empty gym and coaches do not want to go where they know there is no support for the program.
