Last season: 12-18

Nickname: Knights. Coach: Donnie Jones.

Conference: American Athletic.

Key returners: Sophomores B.J. Taylor and Adonys Henriquez. Taylor led UCF and freshmen in the AAC averaging 12.8 points per game last season. His 334 total points were the most for a UCF freshman since 1995-96. Henriquez was second on the team averaging 10.8 points. A 3-point specialist, his 65 makes from 3 last season were the most every by a Knights freshman.

Who left: UCF doesn’t have a lot replace, losing only forward Kasey Wilson to graduation.

The Skinny: The Knights have a full complement of scholarships for the first time in three years after being hit with NCAA sanctions. They have leadership from seniors Stephon Blair and Daiquan Walker, have added two capable transfers in sophomore A.J. Davis and junior Tanksley Efianayi, and hope to get a boost from 7-foot-6 freshman Tacko Fall.
