Although it appears UCONN is not good this year, UCF did just beat them @UCONN 65-53 for the first time ever.

2-0 in conference play, 12-2 overall.

fyi, Bama beat #13 Kentucky a couple days ago. Good for UCF RPI!

Then Houston (in American conference) is #15 in ESPN power poll.
15. Houston Cougars (15-0)
Previous ranking: unranked
This week: at Temple (Wednesday, 7 p.m. ET on ESPNews), vs. Wichita State (Saturday, 8 p.m. ET on CBSSN)

One of three unbeatens remaining in college basketball, the Cougars are sort of the forgotten of the trio. Kelvin Sampson has this team rolling, though. They're one of the best defensive teams in the country, and while they don't have a Rob Gray on the offensive end, they have multiple options. Houston has already defeated LSU, Oregon, Utah State and three other top-100 opponents.

Although at this point it doesn't mean much but UCF is receiving votes in both AP and Coach poll. Upward trend!

next game Sunday 4pm ECU @ucf. ECU Just knocked off Cincinatti. I think I'm going to this game.

I went to my first UCF basketball game yesterday. UCF beat ECU. It was a pretty good game that UCF dominated the entire game. ECU did make it close at the end though.

UCF is now 13-2. 3-0 in conference.

Women's team is 14-2 and making waves as well !

USF is on a roll, too. Should be a good couple of games when they meet, with a lot pride AND standings on the line.

I graduated from St Mary's Hi Skoo in Colorado. We had a hockey team. It was basically a game like Stick Quiz. It's where i ask a question then hit you with a stick.

They lost 3 in a row and then won their last game ..... not exactly a big time "roll"

UCF snaps USF 5 game winning streak tonight. And, a recap of American Conf. UCF is on the bubble for the NCAA tourny. They have the toughest part of their schedule coming up. I've watched every game and attended a couple. UCF is streaky. When they play great they are great and could beat anyone. Tacko Fall in his senior year is playing really good, especially down the stretch. He is 7'6" and getting NBA looks. Is he NBA talent? IDK, but he does play great defense and has potential on offense. He has improved for sure. Will be interesting if he does make it. Houston and Cinci are the hot teams in conference now. However, UCF plays them final games. Will be interesting race to the top. Conf playoffs are @memphis.

#9 Houston Overall: 23-1 Conf: 10-1
Cincinatti Overall 20-4 Conf: 9-2
UCF Overall: 18-5 Conf: 8-3
Temple Overall: 18-7 Conf: 8-4
USF Overall: 17-7 Conf: 8-5
Memphis Overall: 15-10 Conf: 7-5

UCF remaining schedule:

2/16 Memphis @UCF
2/21 UCF @Cinci
2/24 SMU @UCF
2/27 UCF @USF
3/2 UCF @Houston
3/7 Cinci @UCF
3/9 UCF @Temple

March Madness coming! UCF needs to win and a ton to make NCAA. They are healthy with no injuries. Everyone playing pretty good.

Go Knights!

Thursday night game UCF @Cinci 7pm ESPN2.

If ucf wins they tie in 2nd place with Cinci. Somehow I don't think UCF will win, but keeping the faith! The knights need a good showing as the bubble watch is heating up.

Ugh, UCF only scored 18 points in the first half w/15 turnovers. Came in the 2nd half and took the lead, but Cinci wins at end with some clutch threes and free throw shooting. I'm thinking UCF isn't going to make it to the NCAA tourny. That first half was gawd aweful and they couldn't close out Cinci at the end with the lead. Too inconsistent. Flashes of greatness but so very inconsistent. Cincy didn't look all that good either but they are sitting in 2nd place of the conference. Cinci visits UCF in a few games. Hopefully a revenge win for UCF.

Letting that Cinci game get away dif hurt .... after a solid win over Memphis.

They have 6 games left (including Cinci at home and Houston away) and to get an at large, they prolly will need to sweep them all AND make a deep run into the Conf Turny ..... or get hot at Turny time and win it for the automatic bid.

VERY nice win for UCF on the road at Houston ..... Dawkins 3 at about 1:30 to put them back up by1 was HUGE !! Sucked the life outta Houston.

I watched the game on DVR this Sunday morning. Had to ignore everything not to know. Phone on airplane mode since last night. Needless to say that game was awesome! That should propel us into the NCAA tourney and on to the final 4! (knock on wood). If you live nearby and don't have tix for the last UCF home game on Thursday against Cincy you are silly. I got tix right behind UCF bench. Look for me on TV.

I jumped the shark back in November, "UCF BASKETBALL WILL BE IN THE FINAL FOUR THIS YEAR."

Hope I didn't curse it. LOL.
