ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Extra Innings with Renee Luers-Gillispie is now available for viewing online at UCFAthletics.com. Hosted by UCF radio personality Scott Adams, the online video discussion can be viewed through Knights All-Access.
In the most recent episode, Gillispie reviews the Knights' five contests last week, including the UCF Comfort Suites Invitational, where the Black and Gold posted a 3-1 record. During the event, UCF defeated Portland State, Illinois-Chicago and Boston College.
The pair also discusses the team's upcoming slate for the week. The Knights hosted Centenary on Tuesday and Bethune-Cookman and Eastern Michigan on Wednesday, before gearing up for their final home tournament of the season, the UCF Invitational on Feb. 27-March 1.

The utility player posted a .474 (9-for-19) batting average with five doubles, a triple, six runs scored and four RBI. Of McClain's nine hits, six were for extra bases, which included the game-winning RBI double in the eighth inning against Jacksonville on Wednesday
