There are numerous connections between Duke and UCF, both in the basketball programs and at the Athletic Director level. There is a nationally-intriguing matchup between the top player in the country and the tallest player in the nation.
The UCF men's basketball team defeated VCU on March 22 to earn the program's first-ever win in the NCAA Tournament, taking down the Rams 73-58 in Columbia, S.C. Watch the highlights below.
UCF fans had waited 14 years to get back here. They then had to wait six minutes and 23 seconds for their Knights to get on the board in their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2005. It was okay, though. Everything worked out fine.
