AP - Sports

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Isaiah Sykes turned in his first career triple-double as Central Florida rolled over Stetson 83-66 Thursday night.

Sykes had 16 points, 11 rebounds and a career-high 10 assists. The junior had one double-double previously this year and seven for his career, but had never dished out more than eight assists.

The triple-double was the third in school history and first since Kingsley Edwards in 2005.

Keith Clanton led the Knights (7-3) with 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting.

Chris Perez paced the Hatters (3-8) with 20 points and Aaron Graham had 18.

UCF jumped to a 13-4 lead backed by a pair of Kasey Wilson 3-pointers. Staphon Blair put the Knights up 32-22 with two free throws with 4:54 left in the first half, and Stetson never pulled the lead to single digits.

The Knights shot 41.7 percent (10 of 24) from 3-point range, with Wilson hitting 3 of 4.
