In his senior year, Matt Williams emphatically said playing for UCF was the best decision of his life.
On Thursday against USF, Williams’ third three of the night to give UCF the lead wrote his name into the record books.
For the 104th three-pointer of the season and 252nd of his career, Williams broke the season record and career record at UCF. The record surpassed Gary Johnson (103, 2004-05) and Jermaine Taylor (251, 2005-09).
“It just comes from hard work and motivation from my coaches and my teammates,” said Williams to Knights basketball. “Without the confidence that my teammates have in my to keep feeding me the ball, [I would have these records.]”
Tacko Fall’s performance earned the center the single-season record with his 75th block of the season. John Friday held the record since for thirty years, 1986-87 season, with 75 blocks.
As a freshman, Tacko averaged 7.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 2.33 blocks per game. In his sophomore year, Fall averaged 11.5 points, 9.6 rebounds, and finished with 77 blocks for the season. Fall set a UCF single-season record with a .750 average shot from the field.
