Who could have seen this coming?
The UCF Knights hadn’t played in two weeks. The last time we saw them on the floor, they were getting crushed by the Michigan Wolverines. Now, after that long layoff, their next test was to go on the road and challenge the undefeated and 15th-ranked Florida State Seminoles. Oh no?
Oh yes! The Knights beat the Seminoles — and frankly dominated them in the second half — ending a bunch of long streaks on Saturday night:
Per #UCF Athletics:— Brian Murphy (@Spokes_Murphy) December 20, 2020

In our postgame Knight Shift, Eric Lopez and Brian Murphy covered all the angles of this uber-impressive 86-74 victory, including true freshman Isaiah Adams’ star turn, Brandon Mahan’s incredible second half, what this win means for the future of the program and so much more.
