The Cougars (11-8, 3 3 Conference USA)have lost two consecutive games when they held a lead in the final minutes but fumbled it due to missed opportunities.

Head coach James Dickey said the team must fix the mistakes that have plagued them in the last two games if they want to beat ECU (11-9, 3-3) on Saturday..

“Any time you’re on the road, that’s certainly one of the things you have to make sure you’re focused and play great defense,” Dickey said.

“They’re athletic and skilled. We’re going to have to make sure we don’t turn the ball over or give them second chances off turnovers or offensive boards.”

Point guard Zamal Nixon said ECU’s standout guard Kent Brock could cause problems against the Cougars.

The game will tip off at 5 p.m. Saturday and will be televised on CBS College Sports. The game will also be broadcast on 790 AM KBME.
