University of Houston -6 @ University of Central Florida* (7pm EST)
(per Sports Connection Mobile App)
UCF is coming in riding a 5 game losing streak averaging 58ppg while allowing 72ppg. Usually in a situation where a team has lost 5 straight you expect for them to finally get a win, but they are facing a team in Houston who, though coming off a close home loss to Temple, is averaging 78ppg in their last 5 while allowing 72ppg (with a major outlier in both being a 98-90 home win against Memphis). Not to mention a 82-58 drubbing of UCF on February 13th. The numbers point to another big win for Houston as they continue to sharpen their resume for the Conference Tournament.
