    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Ty Armstrong scored 18 points to lead six East Carolina players in double figures in a 91-85 victory over Alabama-Birmingham in a Conference USA game Wednesday night.

    Armstrong also had 10 rebounds for the Pirates (12-6, 3-2), who had lost their last five road games.

    Maurice Kemp scored 17 points, Paris Campbell had 16, Miguel Paul and Akeem Richmond 12 each, and Robert Sampson 10. Those five all scored during a 12-2 run midway through the second half that gave East Carolina a 63-56 lead.

    The Pirates made 14 of 20 free throws in the second half to help preserve the lead, considerably better than the 10 of 21 they hit in a 77-56 loss at Marshall on Saturday.

    The Blazers (8-11, 0-4) lost their fifth in a row. Rod Rucker had 20 points and 12 rebounds to lead UAB, Jordan Swing had 16 points and Quincy Taylor 14.
