UCF has the young talent to build on for the next few years and should result in more wins and post season options. The big thing for this years team is to be more aggressive on the offensive boards. On bad shooting days, the second chance buckets are important.
Kirk has done a GREAT job in his tenure as coach, and I hope he will continue to be rewarded.

Memphis is too athletic and talented for UCF's EIGHT freshman to contend with, but hey, you never know. They're capable of playing very good "D" at times. But if our outside shot isn't falling, we're in BIG trouble, because we have no inside game. Unfortunately, I think our guys get to jazzed up for big games like this, and it affects their shot, just like it did against Ole Miss and Florida. Whatever the outcome, they'll learn from it. The talent level on this team keeps getting better and better. The future looks bright.

UCF has looked really good at times this year but have the tendancy for slow starts. This has been ok with lower or equal compitition, but let's hope that doesn't happen with Memphis, because there will be nothing slow at any phase of Memphis' game.

There are still tickets available. Don't miss the chance to see Memphis they are fun to watch. I don't know why the OS won't help UCF sell these tickets. No mention about number of tickets left?

GO Knights!

Of course there are still tickets. There are plenty of tickets for all UCF athletics because they are a joke. UCF couldn't sell out even if they gave them away. Oh wait, they've tried that.

Rarely do college basketball games in the state sell out...not even for former national champ UF. But Saturday's game should set UCF's attendance record of over 7,100 fans in the house
