NCAA tournament: UCF glides by VCU, 73-58

Getty									Tacko Fall defends Zion Williamson during Dukes and UCFs March Madness matchup

One of the most interesting games in the first round of the NCAA Tournament will take place on Friday night, when VCU and UCF square off on the court at Colonial Life Arena. Taylor leads UCF in scoring behind than 16 points per game even if Fall leads the Knights in rebounding subsequent to 7.3 rebounds per game and Terrell Allen leads UCF in assists taking into account 4.3 assists per game this season.

Will Zion Williamson be able to dunk on 7-foot-6 Tacko Fall?

VCU was led by Malik Crowfield's 11 points, while De'riante Jenkins added 10.

"I was like - we'd rather not play each other, of course", Dawkins said of Krzyzewski. This should allow the Knights to rack up easy points and pull out the win.

Once again, the Blue Devils responded, taking a seven point lead, however, the Knights had another run in them, taking a four point lead with under two minutes to go.

The game is scheduled to start at about 9:40 p.m. ET (following the conclusion of the Duke game) and will be televised on CBS. His shot, however, rolled out and Aubrey Dawkins' put-back attempt also bounced off the rim and out, sealing Duke's win. He is averaging roughly the same point and rebound production as his junior year, but he has really become a more fierce shot blocker as time has gone on.

Dawkins, son of UCF coach Johnny Dawkins, delivered his best performance on the biggest stage.

But with Fall inside, Williamson went outside hitting three 3-pointers after entering with just 18 on the season. The Selection Committee took note of the Knights' late-season victories against Houston (finished No. 11 in the AP Poll) and Cincinnati, (the eventual conference tournament champion), and rewarded them by holding them firm on the No. 9 line instead of penalizing them for a double-digit loss against Memphis in the AAC Tournament.

VCU's offense struggled to hit their shots in the half, hitting just 28.6 percent from the field while not hitting a single three-pointer.

Duke: The Blue Devils have had too many tentative stretches in their first two games, but their overwhelming talent edge saved them against North Dakota State in the opening round and UCF in this one.

Sunday's game is going to be a fun one.
