Wright passed the 1,000-point barrier with a basket in the third quarter. She finished the game with 24 points on 11/20 shooting.

Wright is a junior, so she still has plenty of time to move up the all-time ranks at UCF. Only five Knights have scored at least 1,500 points for their career. The all-time leader is Tamika Coley, who scored 2,006 points from 1991-92 and 1993-1996. Zy Lewis, with whom Kay Kay played in her freshman year, is second at 1,883.
UCF advanced to 22-5 and 11-3 in the league with the win over Temple. The Knights’ next game is Senior Day, next Saturday at home against Tulane.
