It’s an all Florida match up on Thursday night in Tampa Bay. The University of Central Florida Knights make the short trip to take on the South Florida Bulls.
These teams are very similar on the offensive end of the ball, but it’s the defensive side that separates them. This is the second match up of the year between the two teams. UCF won the first match up 86-64.
The UCF Knights have had a successful first season under Johnny Dawkins. Although they are probably going to miss the NCAA Tournament, unless they win their conference tournament the optimism is still high around this team.
They come into this game with a 19-10 and sit in fourth place in the AAC. They have been playing really good basketball as of late. They have won four straight games including in their last game beating the Cincinnati Bearcats.
The Knights strength is on the defensive side of the ball. They only give up 60.7 points a night which is fifth best in all the country.
Opponents only shoot 36.1 percent from the field, which is the best in all the land.
For the Knights to win this game it comes down to the defensive side of the ball. They need to keep the momentum going on that side of the ball to raise their win streak to five, and end the season on a high note.
South Florida Bulls
There is not many words to describe how bad the Bulls have been this season. They come into this game with a record of 7-20 and sit in 11th place in the AAC.
They only have one win since December 22nd. That win was over East Carolina three games ago. Not only have they lost a lot of games, most of the games haven’t been close.
The Bulls struggle on both sides of the ball. On the offensive end they score 65.3 points per game which is 329th in the country. On the defensive side the Bulls give up 75.1 points which is 248th in the country.
For the Bulls to win this game it’s going to take a minor miracle. They would need to play a near perfect game on both ends of the floor. Their best chance to win the game is if the game is played at higher pace of play.
They really need to try and push the tempo up and down the floor.

Free UCF Knights vs. South Florida Bulls NCAAB Prediction:
In the first match up the UFC Knights dominated the play and I expect much of the same in this match up.
I think their defense is just too dominating. I expect the Knights to make scoring really tough for the Bulls.
