The Central Florida Knights took care of business on Friday night against the Howard Bison, winning 62-45 at UCF Arena.
Central Florida (8-3) was led by Tristan Spurlock who scored a game-high 15 points and also pulled down four rebounds. Keith Clanton also had a big night, pouring in eight points while nabbing 11 rebounds and dishing out five assists.
Most impressive thought was the Knights defense, which didn't allow any Howard player t reach double figures in the contest. Howard barely shot 38 percent from the field, including 4-of-14 from behind the 3-point line.
The no.5 Indiana Hoosiers beat the Jacksonville Dolphins 93-59. It appeared to be a massive mismatch on paper, and it played out that way inside Assembly Hall. Indiana rolled behind Jordan Hulls, who led all scorers with 20 points. Cody Zeller also had a solid game with 16 points and six rebounds.
Glenn Powell was a bright spot for Jacksonville, pulled down 12 rebounds and scoring six points.
