CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Chris Braswell had 18 points and seven rebounds as Charlotte held off East Carolina for a 76-64, nonconference victory Saturday night.

Charlotte moved to 7-0, the best start in program history. The team had finished 6-0 three times previously, most recently in 1987-88.

Braswell hit 5 of 8 from the field and 8 of 10 from the free-throw line. Willie Clayton had 14 points and 13 rebounds.

Miguel Paul had 12 points and five assists for the Pirates (5-1), making him the 14th player in East Carolina history to accumulate 200 career assists.

The 49ers outrebounded East Carolina 44-21, and the Pirates nabbed just two offensive rebounds. East Carolina's Maurice Kemp and Robert Sampson entered averaging nine and 11 rebounds per game respectively, but accumulated five combined Saturday.

East Carolina was seeking its first 6-0 start since 2002-03, and has now lost eight straight at Charlotte dating back to 1983.
