What you need to know about UCF

UCF suffered back-to-back losses against Oklahoma and then-No. 21 Auburn after winning its first four games of the season, but the Knights have responded with another four-game winning streak. They have won all four of those games by double digits, including a 75-64 win over North Alabama last Wednesday. Senior guard Darius Perry led the team with 15 points, nine assists and six rebounds. 

Perry is one of two players scoring in double figures for UCF this season. Junior guard Darin Green Jr. is scoring a team-high 14.8 points, while junior forward C.J. Walker is adding 9.6 points. The Knights have won eight of their last nine home games and 13 of their last 16 games overall. 

What you need to know about Michigan

Michigan is coming off a dominant performance at home against Southern Utah, as the Wolverines recorded an 87-50 win on Dec. 18. It was another big night for center Hunter Dickinson, who posted a double-double with 22 points and 10 rebounds. It marked his fourth straight double-double and the 10th of his career.

The Wolverines were scheduled to play Purdue-Fort Wayne before going on Christmas break, but that game was canceled due to COVID-19 issues. Dickinson is joined in double figures by Eli Brooks (12.6) and Caleb Houstan (10.1). Michigan has played three road games so far this season, covering the spread in two of them.
