ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Only 14 players in UCF history have recorded over 1,000 points. The exclusive 1,000-point club is about to grow.

Juniors Keith Clanton and Marcus Jordan are both approaching the 1,000-career point mark. Clanton has registered 960 career points and Jordan has scored 911 points.

This season, Jordan is averaging 17.1 points per game, good for second in Conference USA. Clanton is averaging 16.4 points, which ranks fifth in the conference.

The last Knight to go over the 1,000-career point mark was Jermaine Taylor in 2007-08. Taylor concluded his time at UCF with a school Division I record 1,979 points.

Both Clanton and Jordan will look to add to their scoring totals when the Knights host the UCF Holiday Classic next week. UCF will open the event on Dec. 29 vs. Stetson at 7 p.m. at the UCF Arena. The following day, the team will meet either James Madison or Rhode Island.
