UCF looks to build upon head coach Johnny Dawkins’ success in his first two seasons in Orlando. The Knights have totaled 43 wins over the last two seasons and have been among the best defensive teams in the nation, leading all of NCAA in defensive field goal percentage in 2016-2017. UCF was picked by the league’s coaches to win the American Athletic Conference in 2018-2019, senior point guard B.J. Taylor was named The American Preseason Player of the Year and senior center Tacko Fall was selected Preseason Second Team All-Conference.  Taylor averaged 15.9 points and 3.2 points a game last season despite missing 16 of the Knights' first 17 games.  Fall, who missed the final 14 games last season, averaged 11.3 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game while shooting 767 percent from the field during the 2017-2018 campaign.
