UCF is hoping to end a four-game losing streak against East Carolina that dates back to the 2009-2010 season. UCF has played spirited basketball on both ends of the floor and currently holds a 33-25 lead at East Carolina. The team is shooting 55 percent from the floor but a new scoring duo has emerged.
For most of the season, UCF has been led in scoring by Marcus Jordan and Keith Clanton but that pair only has eight points so far while A.J. Rompza and Isaiah Sykes are carrying the team so far with 24 points on 10 of 12 shooting. UCF also enjoys a nine rebound advantage on the glass and have blocked four shots so far.
Free throw shooting has been a rare site so far with the Knights hitting most of their outside shots and having their way on the inside but have hit just 1 of 4 free throws so far.
