The Central Florida Knights and the George Washington Colonials will both be trying to pick up a win on Thursday when they battle at Charles E. Smith Center.

ABOUT UCF (7-2): Sophomore Tacko Fall, the Knights’ imposing 7-6 center, leads Division I in field-goal percentage (83.3 percent) and is second in rebounds (13.1) – and he did nothing to hurt those numbers in the loss, hitting all eight of his shots while pulling down 17 boards. Senior guard Matt Williams (15.6 points) also contributed 17 points against Penn but the rest of the team managed to hit only 3-of-29 shots from the field. The Knights, who rank No. 1 in field-goal defense (31.1 percent) and second in points allowed (55.3 points), held the Quakers to 36.8 percent shooting but that wasn’t good enough for them to overcome poor shooting and 17 turnovers.

ABOUT GEORGE WASHINGTON (7-4):
The Colonials have been playing well despite the absence of second-leading scorer Yuta Watanabe (calf), rolling with a lineup featuring Tyler Cavanaugh, Jaren Sina, Collin Smith, Arnaldo Toro and Jordan Roland; that starting five has produced victories in all five games in which it has started together. Cavanaugh (team-leading 16.9 points, 7.7 rebounds) had 13 points, 13 rebounds and six assists against Howard while Sina (10.5 points) hit five 3-pointers on his way to scoring 20 points. George Washington is shooting only 40.2 percent from the field but has made up for that by making 77 more free throws on 109 more attempts than its foes.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Colonials listed as 4-point favorites versus the Knights, while the game’s total is sitting at 128.5 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

George Washington was a 79-62 winner in its last match at home against Bison.

Last time out for Central Florida, they were a 58-49 loser as they battled Quakers at home. They failed to cover in the match as a -9-point favorite.

Central Florida will try to bounce back from a dismal shooting performance in a 58-49 loss to Pennsylvania when it visits George Washington on Thursday night. The Knights had their four-game winning streak snapped by the Quakers and will be facing a Colonials team that has won four of its last five games.

The Knights shot below 40 percent from the field for the first time this season and couldn’t recover from a 14-1 run by Penn late in the first half that put them in a 36-24 hole. Playing without starting point guard and leading scorer B.J. Taylor (16.0 points, 5.0 assists) created problems on the offensive end of the court with the Knights being outscored 17-4 in points off turnovers. “There’s a certain way that we play and we can’t get out of character,” UCF coach Johnny Dawkins told reporters after the game. “We got out of character tonight and it really hurt us. We need to get back to focusing on the things we do well and help us be successful.” George Washington is coming off a 79-62 victory over Howard that was highlighted by the team’s ability to share the ball; the Colonials finished with 20 assists on 23 made field goals as they won their second game in a row..
