Tulane (7-17, 2-9) led 47-39 at the 9:43 mark, but then the Knights went on a 13-1 run and grabbed a one-point edge with just under four minutes to play when Rompza hit one of his four 3-pointers.

UCF forced 19 Green Wave turnovers.

In addition to his 17 points, Rompza added four assists and three steals in a career-high 39 minutes. Sophomore guard Isaac Sosa (Guaynabo, Puerto Rico) added 13 points in the win.
