The Knights were one of the last four teams to make the field of 64. UCF beat Cincinnati and No. 11 national seed Oklahoma State in their Big 12 Tournament debut last week. Those two wins likely solidified their spot in the field.

UCF is the No. 3 seed in the Tallahassee Regional and will open play Friday at 6:00 against No. 2 Alabama. The host and No. 8 national seed Florida State will battle the ASUN champs Stetson in the first game of the regional.

The NCAA Tournament bid marks UCF’s 13th Regional appearance in program history. The Knights will play in the Tallahassee Regional for the ninth time.
