Andrew Smith ESPN Editor 

SMU extended its lead to 14 points on another Shake Milton 3-pointer when UCF went 2:45 without a basket midway through the second half. The Knights quickly scored twice, but remain down by double digits with less than 8 minutes remaining.

Andrew Smith ESPN Editor 

SMU has opened up a 8-point lead on UCF after Shake Milton nailed a 3-pointer and then B.J. Taylor was called for a technical foul on the other end of the floor. UCF coach Johnny Dawkins was not a fan of that call and came close to getting T'd up himself, but everyone calmed down during the media timeout.
