The Knights finished with a 3.1 GPA, with 23 student-athletes earning a spot on the UCF academic honor roll.

"Our team had another excellent semester achieving their goal of having a 3.0 or better," said associate head coach Craig Cozart. "Once again, Jennifer Alger, the team's academic advisor, has done a great job preparing our guys to be successful in the classroom. The leadership within this team has certainly raised the standard of expectations for performance on and off the field, and we are excited for the spring to bring even more success."
