ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Facing one of the toughest schedules in program history, UCF had a successful 2012-13 season, recording its third-consecutive 20-win campaign. In their final campaign in Conference USA, the Knights went 20-11 overall and had many notable accomplishments during the season:

• The Knights third-straight 20-victory campaign marked only the second time since the program moved to the Division I level in 1984 that UCF won 20 games in three-consecutive years

• After a third-place C-USA finish a year ago, the Knights placed fourth in the league, providing UCF with its first back-to-back top-four C-USA finishes since joining the conference in 2005

• The Knights defeated a pair of top-30 RPI teams: Belmont (19) and Southern Miss (30)

• UCF picked up its first victory over host USF in Tampa since 1978

Keith Clanton concluded his career as the program's all-time leader in rebounds (1,000), blocks (227), games played (129), starts (121) and sixth in points (1,718)

• Clanton also concluded his career third in C-USA history in rebounds and ninth in blocks and was only the second player in league history to record 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds

• The Orlando native logged 1,096 minutes during the year, the second-highest total in school history

• Clanton's 63 blocks were good for second on the program single-season register and his 266 rebounds were fifth

Isaiah Sykes led the nation with two triple-doubles and became only the second player in C-USA history to record two triple-doubles in a season

• Sykes became the 17th player to join UCF's 1,000-point club

• Sykes' 141 assists and 72 steals both ranked seventh on the UCF single-season lists

• Sykes and Clanton both earned NABC All-District 11 First Team honors, marking the first time that two Knights earned all-district recognition in the same season

Kasey Wilson connected on 42-of-84 3-point attempts and set a UCF single-season 3-point field goal percentage record (50 percent)
