The UCF Men’s Basketball team lost their third game of the season Wednesday night on the road to cross-state rival USF 69-65 dropping their record to 7-3 on the year.
While they were in the game throughout its entirety, they simply couldn’t get over the hump and make a run big enough to come back. The problem right now is that they can’t get into a good rhythm and put together a complete game.
The season is still young and the team is young too but it is time for head coach Kirk Speraw to tighten his rotation especially when the Knights are playing teams from the Big East like USF and Connecticut, who they will play next.
