UCF is one of the most interesting teams. They play good defense even without their monstrous center but I am not sure it will be enough.
Just to clarify, it should be more than enough to beat a pretty lame East Carolina team. Do not expect a lot of points to be scored in this one.
East Carolina Pirates
This program is a mess right now. They have lost five in a row and have four players out due to suspensions or eligibility concerns. Even whole they aren’t great.
Senior guard BJ Tyson has been a good soldier averaging 15ppg to lead the team. But there i sonly so much he can do really.
Isaac Fleming transferred in from Hawaii (why?) and has seen a small bump in his numbers but like the rest of the team is not a great shooter. You can sag off these guys.
Shawn Williams is a nice building block at guard. He has had some big games over the course of the season but is very up and down.
UCF was a sleeper for me at the beginning of the season. They played good defense and had a presence that no other team had in center Tacko Fall.
While the commitment to defense has been there all season long Fall hasn’t and they lost prominent transfer Aubrey Dawkins before the games even started.
That essentially left the team with just a couple of scoring options in AJ Davis and BJ Taylor. Both are quality players but on their own do not make a quality team.
There will be urgency for this group but they need to advance and beat an AAC team destined for the Tournament to have any shot of making it themselves.

Free East Carolina Pirates vs. UCF Knights NCAAB Prediction:
This is a huge number. UCF is a lot better but that is a ton of points for a team that has trouble scoring itself.
That being said UCF won their only game against ECU this season by 20 points. Holding the Pirates to just 39.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UCF -13.5
UCF is the play in this one but I would say you are better to take a pass rather than sweat it out.
