Memphis-UCF was billed as a heavyweight fight and through much of the game, it lived up and exceeded all expectations as the Knights matched the superior sized, national power Memphis Tigers. Still, the Knights couldn't find enough offense at the end of the game and fell 73-66 in front of a record crowd of 9,825 at the UCF Arena.
