ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Marcus Jordan, son of NBA legend Michael, scored 26 points and Central Florida beat Stetson 80-70 on Thursday night.

The Knights' win in the UCF Holiday Classic was the 18th straight victory in a non-conference home game. UCF has now won five of its last six games.

Isaiah Sykes added 20 points, Tristan Spurlock 13 and Keith Clanton had a double-double with 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Knights (9-3). UCF will face the winner of the James Madison-Rhode Island game Friday at 7 p.m. in the tournament championship.
