ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Marcus Johnson scored a career-high 18 points and Gary Johnson hit a pair of free throws with 3.7 seconds remaining to seal UCF's 70-66 win over Stetson on Tuesday night.

The loss was Stetson's seventh straight to UCF (10-4, 3-3 Atlantic Sun Conference) and it was the Hatters third straight loss overall.

E.J. Gordon's two free throws with 33 seconds left brought Stetson (4-9, 2-4) to 68-66. Gary Johnson then missed the front end of a one-and-one, giving the Hatters a chance to tie or take the lead, but Will Holloman's runner in the lane with 6 seconds to go fell short.

Gary Johnson grabbed the rebound and was fouled to seal the win.

Marcus Avant finished with 17 points and Gary Johnson and Josh Peppers added 14 points each for the Golden Knights, who were 6-of-9 from 3-point range in the second half and 12-of-25 for the game.
