No. 4 UConn Vs. UCF Final Score: Marcus Jordan Leads Knights To Big Upset

Marcus Jordan scored 20 points as UCF upset No. 4 UConn in the Bahamas on Friday.

Marcus Jordan, son of NBA legend Michael Jordan, had a whale of a game as the UCF Knights put away defending national champion UConn in the Bahamas, 68-63. UConn had been riding a 16-game win streak, dating back to last season, before faltering at the Battle 4 Atlantis.

UCF had to rally, heading into the half down nine to the Huskies. With just under 15 minutes to go in the game, the Knights trailed by 17, but began to make reel in UConn shortly thereafter. A 19-3 run cut the UConn lead to three, 55-52, and had UCF within striking distance with under eight minutes to go.

With three minutes left, Jordan hit a pair of free throws to finally give UCF a one-point lead, 58-57. It was a lead UCF wouldn't relenquish as it finished the game on a 10-6 run to knock off the No. 4 Huskies.

Jordan did it all for the Knights, scoring 20 points while dishing out seven assists and grabbing seven rebounds in the win. He was joined in double-figures by Keith Clanton, who added 20 points, and Isaiah Sykes, who scored 10 points.

Jeremy Lamb scored a team-high 15 points in the loss. Alex Oriakhi added 14 points and Andre Drummond chipped in 13 points and nine rebounds for the Huskies.
