It has been a while since the Quakers were any kind of threat in the Ivy League. This year is not expected to be any different.
UCF has gotten off to as good as start as any program in the AAC but it is a little early to start calling them a contender.
They should be able to get an easy win to push their record even further though.
This is not a good Penn team. To counteract their lack of talent they play a slow down style that suppresses offense.
It is rare in the Ivy but Penn is led by freshman AJ Brodeur. He is averaging 14ppg and is second on the team in rebounding.
He is the only real presence they have up front which is going to be tricky against the size of UCF. They do not have another forward averaging more than 3ppg.
Matt Howard is the next leading scorer at 13ppg. The senior plays smart and leads the team in rebounds. He is not going to wilt on the road. The question is who supports their big two.
Jackson Donahue came off the bench in their last game to score 11 points. He is off to a slow start shooting wise but was effective last season as a frosh, averaging almost 10ppg.
Not all of Penn’s games have been lined this season but they are 2-0 ATS on the road this season.
The Knights have just one loss on the season, to top ranked Villanova, a game in which they covered.
That does not make them a juggernaut but shows that maybe the early results are something they can build on.
Though it is going to be tough without BJ Taylor, the Knights leading scorer – he is out indefinitely with a hand injury. He was not just their top scorer but ran their attack from the point.
UCF has one of the biggest players in the country in Tacko Fall. He has improved so much from a year ago. He averages 13ppg and 12rpg and when he is on the floor he makes it hard for teams to score inside thanks to being 7’6″.
Penn has no real answer.
UCF is 3-1 ATS on the season but has not had any lined games at home. It shows you the kind of teams they are inviting to Orlando.

Free Penn Quakers vs. UCF Knights NCAAB Prediction:
Penn will play hard but I think they are going to be overmatched. Especially inside.
UCF gets a chance to add to their early season run. They are looking to bank as many wins as possible to try to be a factor later in the season.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UCF -10
Unless the Quakers can get Fall in foul trouble early I expect UCF will run out to a big lead and just hold it from there.
