The Lady Knights just earned their first at large bid to the NCAA Tournament ever. UCF is heading to Coral Gables as the 12 seed in the Portland Region. They will take on 5 seed Arizona State who is 20-10.
The seeding in the region is as follows:
- Mississippi State
- Arizona State
- South Dakota State
- South Dakota
- Portland State
UCF will take on the Sun Devils on Friday at 7 pm est on ESPN 2.
The game will likely be a low scoring affair as both teams love to play defense and go at a slow pace. The first team to 50 might win.
A UCF win could set up a matchup with Miami or FGCU in a battle for Florida in the Round of 32.
The game times line up perfectly for Knights fans, you can watch the women play at 7 and then the men’s game at 9:30.
More than a football school
UCF is one of two schools (Michigan) to make a New Years Six Bowl, the Men’s NCAA Tournament, and the Women’s NCAA Tournament.
