ORLANDO, Fla. ( - UCF fans can pack the UCF Arena on March 2 when the Knights finish their 2012-13 home schedule and the program's time in Conference USA by hosting league power Memphis. The game starts at 1 p.m. and will serve as senior Keith Clanton's final home contest.

Tickets are currently available by calling (407) UCF-1000 or by clicking here.

One of the greatest players in UCF history, Clanton has shined as a Knight. The Orlando native is the program's all-time leader in rebounds, blocks and games played and is sixth in scoring. The forward has started 115-consecutive contests and earned C-USA Preseason Player of the Year honors in October after receiving all-league first team and all-defensive team accolades in 2011-12. Clanton has led the Knights to some the biggest wins in program history, including triumphs over No. 4 UConn and No. 16 Florida.

Memphis is currently ranked in the top 25 and has won 16-consecutive contests.

UCF begins play in the BIG EAST next fall and the game against Memphis will serve as the program's final C-USA home contest. When the Knights and Tigers met in Orlando a year ago, Clanton had 23 points and the game-winning 3-point play to guide UCF to its first series victory.
