Orlando, FL (AP) - A.J. Rompza and Isaac Sosa each scored 13
points as Central Florida improved to 3-0 under new head coach
Donnie Jones with a 65-59 defeat of rival South Florida Thursday
night.

The Knights (3-0) entered the game shooting 63.6 percent from
the floor and averaging 97.5 points, but beat the Bulls (1-2) with
defense. UCF held USF without a point for a four-minute stretch
late in the second half, building a one-point lead to nine. USF got
within two, but no closer.

UCF, a member of Conference USA, beat the Big East-affiliated
Bulls for a second time in three seasons. A home crowd of 7,653 --
the fourth-largest in UCF history -- watched the game.

Jones left C-USA rival Marshall and took over at UCF in March. A
former assistant at the University of Florida, he has instilled a
trapping, up-tempo style that has produced routs of West Florida
and Jackson State by a combined 95 points.
