Freshman Williams scores 21, UCF rides 2nd half spurt past Florida Tech, 90-62

Freshman Matt Williams scored 21 points, all on 3-pointers, and Kasey Wilson added 16 points and 11 rebounds as Central Florida downed Division II Florida Tech 90-62 on Saturday.

UCF was hampered by some first-half turnover issues, but began the second half on a 23-6 run to take a 61-35 lead with 12:50 left to take control.

Julius Reid led Florida Tech with 22 points and Chris Carter added 14.

The win snapped a two-game losing streak for the Knights, who hadn't played since their Nov. 23 loss at Florida.

UCF now must endure an 11-day layoff before it hosts Bethune-Cookman University on Dec. 12.

Florida Tech is also off for a week, returning home to host Devry Dec. 8.
