Instate and conference rivals the Central Florida Knights tangle with the South Florida Bulls.
Central Florida looked pretty good heading in to their conference schedule but things have been in a downward spiral since with the Knights struggling to a 1-10 mark in the AAC. UCF played one of their best games Wednesday yet still came up short in a 76-70 defeat at Memphis in which a late lead fell by the wayside. This one was right there for the taking with nearly 45% shooting hanging tough with the 50% accuracy of Memphis but 15 giveaways and the Tigers 18-8 at the line negated eleven more looks. Tristan Spurlock scored 18 points and hauled in ten rebounds with Isaiah Sykes adding 14 points and six yanks followed by Kasey Wilson with ten points.

South Florida has struggled through their AAC schedule with the offense unable to provide consistent scoring and the defense having problems getting stops. The Bulls were in the wrong place at the wrong time in an 83-40 thrashing at the hands of Connecticut on Wednesday. The Bulls scored a season low 14 first half points and trailed by 31 and were never able to get their feet under them. The Huskies were in command throughout with nearly 53% marksmanship while South Florida suffered through 24% from the field and 15 giveaways. USF did not have a single double digit scorer with Musa Abdul-Aleem leading the offense with eight points while John Egbunu adding seven points and six boards.
I don't know why anyone would choose to bet this game with so many other choices out there. I guess South Florida at home is my choice but after watching their debacle at Connecticut I can't say I'm all that sure...
