“We need as many of these top 100 type wins as we can get,” Sampson said.

62-53 UCF with 7:06 left. COOGS getting outrebounded badly and not hitting shots.

69-61 with 4 to go; hanging in there, but got to stop fouling.

69-65 now as the COOGS are hustling all over the place. 2:20 left.

Chicken fouls out. UCF makes 1 of 2. 70-65

Gray with a runner 70-67. 1:40 left.

Fall with a dunk with 50 seconds left, they’re looking at it to see if it was before the shot clock ran out.

Bucket counts, 72-67.

damn. we never have calls go our way.

Gray has it stolen and a foul on Gray puts UCF on the line. UCF makes both. 74-67 with 39 seconds left.

Quick foul on UCF puts Nkali on the line.

Nkali misses the first, gets the board and turns it over. Quick foul puts UCF on the line.

UCF makes 1 of 2. 75-67.

Van Beck misses the 3 and UCF back to the line. This one is about over.

Where is Dotson. He is I think having a so far season and really has shown nothing in the games we lost. He needs to step up more and lead this team.

Final is 77-70 UCF.

Gray had 28, Galen had 20, Dotson had 10, Chicken 8, Van Beck 4.

We got 0 points from the bench. Dotson shot well, but only had 8 shots. UCF shot 57% to the Coogs 44%. UCF had a 26-11 free throw advantage. UCF outrebounded Us 34-24.

He can’t/won’t create his own shot so teams are guarding him close on the perimeter.

Also doesn’t help that we don’t have an interior threat with Davis out.

Memphis Thursday and at SMU Saturday. Tough week ahead.

When is Davis supposed to come back?
