SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -- Unbeaten Central Florida gave up 17
consecutive points in the first half before Keith Clanton led a
rally that helped the Knights beat Miami 84-78 Saturday in the
one-day Orange Bowl Classic.
The Knights trailed 43-31 late in the first half, their largest
deficit this season. Clanton scored all but one of his 14 points
after halftime, and Marcus Jordan scored 23 before leaving the game
due to injury with 84 seconds left.
Jordan, the son of Michael Jordan, hurt his left ankle when he
was fouled and fell at midcourt. He grimaced in pain and didn't put
any weight on his ankle as he was helped to the sideline, but he
stood in front of the bench in the final seconds.
The Knights (10-0) are off to their best start since 1979. The
Hurricanes (7-3) had won five games in a row.
