ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - A new "Pick Your Starting Five Plan," which allows fans to select tickets to five UCF men's basketball games at the UCF Arena for as little as $45, is now available. The plan offers fans lower baseline or upper level courtside seat opportunities.

The Knights open the regular season this Friday, hosting Massachusetts at 7 p.m. UCF is scheduled to play 15 contests at home this year.

To purchase the "Pick Your Starting Five Plan" today, call (407) UCF-1000 or visit UCFAthletics.com.

Several key letterwinners from last season are back for head coach Kirk Speraw's Knights, including junior forward A.J. Tyler (Palm Harbor, Fla.) and sophomore guards A.J. Rompza (Chicago, Ill.) and Isaac Sosa (Guaynabo, Puerto Rico). Rompza was named to the 2008-09 C-USA All-Freshman Team.

UCF's freshman class of forward Keith Clanton (Orlando, Fla.), guards Nik Garcia (Chicago, Ill.), Marcus Jordan (Highland Park, Ill.) and R.J. Scott (Slidell, La.) is considered to be one of the strongest recruiting classes in school history.

The Knights are slated to play eight Conference USA games in Orlando, including matchups with UTEP (Jan. 23), Tulsa (Jan. 30), Houston (Feb. 16) and UAB (Feb. 24). Season tickets, which start at just $79, are still available by calling (407) UCF-1000 or by visiting UCFAthletics.com.
