Notes

  • UCF is 0-13 all-time vs. UConn.
  • However, this is the first meeting since UConn left The American for the Big East in 2020.
  • The last time UConn got knocked out in the Second Round was in 1992. They are 28-2 all-time in that round.
  • UConn’s last loss at Gampel Pavilion was to #3 Oregon on February 3, 2020.
  • In fact, it’s been 14 years since UConn failed to make the Final Four.
  • The last two meetings in 2020, UCF lost to UConn twice, by 7 and 13 points. The prior 11 meetings, the closest UCF got was 18 points.
  • Absolutely none of this matters. Let’s go.
