sey Wilson scored 20 points and pulled down 10 rebounds to help the University of Central Florida rally past Howard University 79-64 on Wednesday.
Calvin Newell added 19 points and Daiquan Walker 10 for UCF (5-3), which outscored Howard 49-32 in the second half.
The Bison (2-10), playing without leading scorer James Daniel, got 20 points from Prince Okoroh and 16 from Solomon Mangham, but couldn't get another player in double figures and lost their 10th straight game.
Wilson started the Knights second-half surge with an unlikely 3-pointer. The 6-7 junior launched the shot from a few steps inside halfcourt just as the shot-clock sounded and it swished. That prompted a 14-5 run that Wilson finished with a follow shot to make it 64-52 with 5:37 left in the game.
Okoroh interrupted the run with a layup, but the Knights made 3-pointers on four straight possessions.
