The 2013 sports season is here and the Knights are off to a strong start after a great finish to 2012.
Knights fans continue to celebrate UCF's 38-17 win against Ball State in the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl. The men's basketball team also won the UCF Holiday Tournament. UCF defeated Howard and then old rival Belmont the following day to keep the trophy in Orlando.
Senior forward Keith Clanton was named the tournament MVP scoring a total of 34 points in both contests and moved into second all-time in UCF's career rebounds with 852. The Orlando native is less than 100 rebounds away from the program's all-time mark, which is held by Ken Leeks with 942 rebounds.
It's basketball heavy this week for the Knights with the Men's team taking on rival USF at home on Wednesday and will close out non-conference play against Florida A&M.
The women's team will close out its non-conference schedule on the road up north in Ohio against Bowling Green.
