ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Fans looking to learn more about the UCF men's basketball program should tune in each week to watch UCF Sports Today with Kirk Speraw. The program airs multiple times each Tuesday on UCF TV, Sun Sports and Bright House Sports Network.

The 30-minute show, which is hosted by UCF radio voice Marc Daniels, debuts Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. on Bright House Sports Network, and then airs at 12:30 p.m. on UCF TV. UCF fans statewide can watch at 4 p.m. on Sun Sports.

The season premiere includes a look at UCF's youth movement. With only three upperclassmen, the Knights feature one of the youngest teams in the country. This week senior guard Drew Speraw (Oviedo, Fla.) and junior forward A.J. Tyler (Palm Harbor, Fla.) will talk about their younger teammates, and the program's bright future.

Also during the episode Speraw and Daniels will take a look back at UCF's non-conference games from November and December.

The program features music from Ambertone (myspace.com/ambertone) and The Dropa Stone (myspace.com/thedropastone).

Speraw's Knights will conclude the non-league portion of their schedule Tuesday at 14th-ranked Ole Miss. UCF will open up Conference USA play Saturday by hosting Rice at 5 p.m. at the UCF Arena. A special "Pick Your Starting Five" ticket plan, which allows fans to select lower bowl tickets to five games of their choice for as little as $45, is currently available by calling (407) UCF-1000.
