ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) -- Coming off back-to-back wins, the UCF women's basketball team (8-9, 3-2 C-USA) looks to steal one on the road for the first time this season when the Knights face Marshall (12-5, 3-1 C-USA) on Sunday at 1 p.m. UCF has won the last four meetings between the two squads.
A win on Sunday would give seniors Aisha Patrick, Ashia Kelly and Racine Davis their 34th career Conference USA victory, making them the winningest senior class during C-USA play in school history.
Patrick heads into the game 16 points shy of cracking into UCF's top 10 career scorers. The guard is averaging 17.6 points per game during conference play.
UCF assistant coach Bob Starkey is a native of West Virginia and served as an assistant coach with the Thundering Herd in 1988-89. Starkey hails from Charleston, W. Va., which is about 50 miles east of Marshall.
UCF outrebounded Rice on Thursday, marking the sixth-straight game and the 13th time this season that the Knights have grabbed more boards than their opponent. UCF holds a 8-5 record when outrebounding an opponent this season. Sophomore Erika Jones currently ranks among the top 20 rebounders in the country with a team-best 10.2 rebounds per game.
Marshall returns to conference play after losing to West Virginia on Tuesday. The Herd have wins over conference foes Houston, Tulsa and Southern Miss and hold a 6-2 mark at home this year.
Not one Marshall player averages double figures as Jasmine Shaw leads the team in scoring with 7.9 points per game despite not starting a single game this year. Erica Woods paces the team in rebounding with 6.5 boards per game.
Royce Chadwick is serving his 11th season as Marshall's head coach and has spent more than 20 years as a head coach in Division I basketball.
The IMG Sports Network will broadcast all of UCF's games live on UCFAthletics.com with a subscription plan. Scott Adams will provide the play-by-play. Live stats are also available via UCFAthletics.com.
