UCF had its moments in the non-conference schedule, like beating Nebraska and winning at Alabama, along with two decent losses, each by three points, against St. John’s and Missouri.
So there were some expectations for the Knights in the American Athletic and they have just sort of met them.
UCF has lost all of its games against the top-3 teams in the standings — the three teams that are hunting for either NCAA Tournament position or just a berth: Cincy, Wichita and Houston.
It’s also lost at Tulsa, UConn and SMU but at 8–7, it hasn’t been a huge disappointment.
The Knights struggle to score at times but can really lock you down on defense. Because of that strength and team identity, they will be a team to watch in the conference tournament.
Tacko Fall has been out and will continue to be out, however. He hasn’t played since the middle of January because of a troublesome shoulder that requires surgery.
Temple has had a series of ups and downs within, or right around, conference play. The Owls lost five in a row early on, just as the American schedule was getting started. It won five in a row not long ago, including a win over Wichita State.
But the Owls have lost two in a row since then, the most recent a 21-point home loss to Houston. The game before that, Temple blew a 14-point halftime lead at Wichita State.
Quinton Rose will be the best player on the floor and for that reason, primarily, I like the Owls at home.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Over is 7-2 in UCF last 9 overall.
- Over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
