The Knight have looked strong so far. They are on a give game winning streak but have not won on the road this season.
UConn has played a tough schedule and taken some losses. They now need to win the games they are supposed to .
Good start to AAC play for the Knights beating a solid Temple team at home. Their two losses are by a combined three points.
Tacko Fall is a presence in the middle to say the least. He helps them give up only 63ppg by blocking three shots a contest and altering probably just as many.
UCF also has a sneak good backcourt of BJ Taylor and Aubrey Dawkins. Combined they are averaging 33ppg and can both play off the ball thanks to Terrell Allen who does not turn it over.
This team has a bit of everything though not much depth. Against Temple they bench contributed only five points, 2 assists and four rebound. Some nights that is going to kill them.
UConn has the talent to be a competitor in the AAC but they are very one dimensional. They rely exclusively on perimeter players and only a few of them.
If Jalen Adams was just a little better from the perimeter he would be in elite territory. He struggles shooting from three but can kill you in transition with his ability to finish.
Christian Vital and Alterique Gilbert are very useful players who also shoot better than 40% from deep. Adams is good but you can argue he should share more.
Josh Carlton is the most productive big man the Huskies have but he is a far cry from the shot swatting and rebounding machines they have had in the past.

Free UCF Knights vs. Connecticut Huskies NCAAB Prediction:
Fall can be a huge difference maker, literally. That is sometimes why I am sucker for UCF.
I think the Knights will be the underdogs in this one on the road and in that role I really like this veteran group.
