It’s the semifinal round of the AAC conference tournament on Saturday. The UCF Knights will take on the SMU Mustangs for a chance to play in the AAC championship game.
This is the second time the two teams have played this year. The Mustangs won the first match up 65-60 so UCF comes into this game at least knowing they have a chance.
The Central Florida Knights have had a good season so far but it doesn’t look like it will be enough to make the NCAA Tournament, unless they win the conference tournament.
The Knights come into this game off one of their most impressive wins of the season. On Friday they beat Memphis by a final score of 84-54.
The Strength for the Knights is on the defensive end of the floor.
They only give up 60 points per game well opponents shoot 36 percent from the field. Although their defense is the strength this game is going to come down to the offensive end of the floor.
The Mustangs also have a great defense and they need to find a way to attack that.
The SMU Mustangs look like a team that could make a serious run in the NCAA tournament, if they stay focused.
On Friday they played East Carolina and in the first half it was turning into a blowout, but then the Mustangs took their foot off the gas and let East Carolina crawl all they way back to within two, before pulling it out in the end.
For SMU to win this game they need to stay focused on the defensive side of the floor.
They give up a lot of points to an East Carolina team that doesn’t score a ton of points. If they let that happen they might be bounced by the Knights.

Free UCF Knights vs. SMU Mustangs NCAAB Prediction:
I expect both of these teams to come out and be locked in on the defensive side of the ball early. I think it will take a while for both teams to start making their shots.
I think in the second half SMU will pull away on the offensive end well continuing their dominating defense.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UNDER
I expect a game that the Mustangs will win that goes under.
