ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Daiquan Walker scored 20 points as UCF downed Tulane 73-65 on Wednesday night.

Walker was 5 of 13 from the field and sank all eight of his free throws for the Knights (12-16, 6-11 American Conference). Freshman Tacko Fall added 17 points and 13 rebounds for his fourth double-double of the season. Adonys Henriquez had 16 points.

Tulane jumped to a 21-9 lead midway through the first half but Fall brought UCF back with a pair of dunks and two layups in the final 4:11 to take a 33-32 lead at the break.

The Knights extended their advantage to 52-41 on a Walker 3-pointer with 11:43 to play and led the rest of the way. Tulane cut it to 64-60 on a Cameron Reynolds dunk with 2:36 remaining but could not get closer.
