Cincinnati overcomes rough first half to beat UCF (0:41)

North Carolina's multi-decade streak of home-court perfection against Clemson remains intact. In a series dating to 1926, the Tigers have never won a game in Chapel Hill. Clemson is now 0-59 at UNC after tonight's 87-79 loss to the Tar Heels at the Dean Dome. One of the weirdest and most incredible streaks in sports continues.

UCF leads Cincinnati 19-15 at the half in Orlando, putting the Knights and the Bearcats within shouting distance of the record for fewest combined points in a D-I game since 1986 (62). We knew coming into the game that these were two of the best defenses in the country. We were right.

Trae Young wasn't on our preseason list. So, yeah, it was time for an update. His rise all the way up the board isn't the only big move.
