- Welcome to the Matt Williams show! He had seven trey balls for 21 total points. I can promise you this Knight fans, you will greatly enjoy following his career.... Great player, even better kid.
- I loved seeing 22 assists last night, although we need the turnover margin to decrease.
- Daiquan Walker got the start again. His line = 15pts, 2 assists, 2 steals, 4 turnovers.
- Solid game for Isaiah Sykes who played wing most of the night. His more natural postion is in attack mode on the wing.
- I liked the Keith Clanton and Kasey Wilson dynamic. They always know where the forward is on the floor. It is hard for opposing teams to guard a small forward and power forward who are as consistent as they are.
- Florida Tech played a multiple of defenses - some man-to-man, full court press, 2-3 zone and a soft 3¼ one-two-two press.
- When teams press the Knights I would like to see Walker attack it more instead of waiting for the trap to come. Sometimes the best way to beat a press is to attack it head on and that will be needed once conference play opens.
- Wilson and Clanton are great when they receive the ball in the middle of the zone. Both are threats to score and distribute.
- The press is back! It needs to be fine tuned, but with Williams back the Knights have more fresh bodies. Just wait until Calvin Newell enters the lineup!
- 28 deflections on the night. I'll take it.
- The Knights continue to guard the 3-point line very well. Florida Tech only shot 28 percent from deep.
- 48-26 rebounding margin in favor of the Knights #Windex.
- I continue to be impressed by Staphon Blair's consistency on the defensive end. There is so much Ben Wallace in Staphon Blair.
- Sykes had an insane block in the first half, chasing down a Florida Tech player on a fastbreak. If I knew Sykes was behind me on a fastbreak I would probably dribble the ball out or say the rosary... either one is a fairly safe option.
- Folks I hope you can truly appreciate how important it was to Matt Willaims to have a game like that. He loves UCF, loves playing basketball, and is committed to the program. It is great to have that kid back... he has been through quite a tough time recently and I was so happy to see him perform like that.
- All-American trainer Andy Reber was back to his old fashionable self - cream colored suit with a perfectly matched orange tie. However, the fashion winner of the week is clearly UCF Athletics assistant director of communications director Eric DeSalvo. Last Thursday Eric was wearing a red and black flannel button down, tan corduroy pants and a red and green tie that played a Christmas jingle. #embarrassingbutawesome. He wins the Ron Burgundy come see how good I look award.
- Scott Adams was on radio play by play last night. His hair wins awards every time he turns his head.
- It was a very sad day though, Tyler Coons shaved the mutton chops #fearthebarbasol?
- Get ready for the appearance of Calvin Newell! UCF will have so many weapons on offense when he steps on the court.
- The next game is on Dec. 12 vs. Bethune-Cookman. See you there Knight fans!
