UCF Hosts Florida Tech

After posting an impressive victory over USF last week, the UCF men's basketball team will return to action Friday, hosting Florida Tech. Tip-off at the UCF Arena is slated for 7 p.m.

Last Saturday, the Knights (4-3) defeated visiting USF for the first time since 1994 behind 30 points from senior guard Jermaine Taylor (Tavares, Fla.). On the year, Taylor is averaging a team-high 19.9 points.

Florida Tech enters the contest 6-1 in 2008-09.

Tickets for the game are available at Ticketmaster.com and (407) 839-3900. The UCF Arena box office will also be open Friday before the contest. Students are admitted free to all UCF home games with a valid school ID.

A UCF Basketball Outback Steakhouse Four-Pack is currently available for only $50 by calling the UCF ticket sales office at (407) UCF-1000. The four-pack offers the best seat available at the UCF Arena for the Knights' Jan. 10 contest with national power Memphis. The package also includes tickets to UCF's Conference USA games with SMU (Jan. 28), Houston (Feb. 4) and East Carolina (March 7).
