Keith Clanton scored a career-high 30 points as UCF cruised to a 72-62 victory against Bethune-Cookman on Wednesday. The senior was unstoppable inside going 14-of-15 from the floor, most of which were layups and dunks.
The Knights led by as many as 20 points in the second half. A late Wildcat rally made things a little more interesting when they trimmed the lead to eight with 3:42 to go, but a Matt Williams three-pointer in the next possession ended any hope for a rally as the Knights maintained a double-digit lead until the end of the game.
Next up for UCF (5-2) is a Friday game in Norfolk, Va., against Old Dominion (1-8). The Monarchs are playing their final season in the Colonial Athletic Association before they join Conference USA next year.
