Addition Financial Arena, Orlando FL
ESPN2

UCF (9-6, 0-3 AAC, NET #103, Kenpom #107)

UCF enters the game on a four game losing streak. Three of those were on the road against top 60 teams. Illinois St is the lone common opponent, who UCF beat on the road by two. They are 174th in offensive efficiency, 74th in defense, and 214th in tempo. Their strengths are offensive rebounding (54th) and keeping teams off the free throw line (58th). Weaknesses are getting to the line (284th) and 3pt shooting (302nd, 29.8%).

Torvik predicts a 67-65 win, 56% win probability.

UCF is led by 6'11" junior Collin Smith, who has a 28.5 usage rate and an ORtg below 100.

Never want to play a team who’s lost 4 in a row and now gets to have a home game against cincinnati

Nice job, Sedziobs.

Early lines have us as 2 to 2.5 point favorites.

UCF only returned their 4th, 8th, and 9th leading scorers from last season's team, so one could argue that they've had a bigger challenge than we've had with breaking in a new roster.

In their past two home games they've lost to Temple by 4 and only beat NET #296 Bethune Cookman by 5.

This is a game that we should expect to win. Hopefully we have a decent fan contingent present in what should be a fairly friendly road atmosphere.

This lineup is a bit too lacking in offense. McNeal, Sorolla and Diarra.

The narrative that Chris McNeal is a good defender is wrong, he’s not good at anything
