    ORLANDO, Fla. -- Isaiah Sykes scored 22 points and Central Florida, shooting 72.4 percent in the first half, coasted to a 99-69 victory over Florida A&M in a nonconference game Saturday.

    The Knights (10-4) made 21 of 29 first-half shots, including 9 of 14 (64.3 percent) from 3-point range, to take a 55-28 halftime lead against the Rattlers (4-11), who have lost five in a row.

    Florida A&M shot 58.6 percent (17 of 29) in the second half but never cut UCF's lead below 25 points.

    Tristan Spurlock and Keith Clanton scored 15 points each for UCF, and Clanton also pulled down six rebounds. That gave the senior 872 career rebounds, good for ninth place on the all-time Conference USA list ahead of Kenyon Martin, who played at Cincinnati from 1997-2000 when it was part of the league.

    Reggie Lewis scored 13 points and Jamari Bradshaw 11 for the Rattlers.
