About Last Night

The Knights and Owls engaged in the best kind of no defense all offense game in the AAC nightcap. In a game that saw 80 posessions both teams scored at an above average rate, 1.07 PPP for the Owls, 1.17 PPP for the Knights the decisive factor might just have been UCF's ability to crash the offensive glass. Well that an the play of Sykes who put up an impressive offensive display notching 36 points on 23 shots and generally controlling the flow of the potent Knights offense.

Previously...

In the two match ups between the Bearcats and the Knights this season it has been one way traffic. The Bearcats completely suffocated the Knights in the home game, and put together one of their best offensive games of the season in blitzing UCF on their home floor. UC could have an off day tonight and still advance to the semi finals in relative comfort tonight.
