There is a lot on the line at Wednesday's women's basketball game — and not all of it involves the players on the court.
Not only are the Knights (4-5) squaring off against undefeated Akron (8-0), but the first 200 fans will take home their own UCF ugly sweater t-shirt. And for those who specialize in paper-airplane making, at halftime a lucky fan will win $10,000 during a paper airplane contest in honor of Wright Brothers Day.
On the court, the Knights are 4-1 at home this season, and led by Zykira Lewis, who is averaging more than 20 points per game. UCF hopes to halt the success of the Zips' scoring duo Anita Brown and Sina King, who are both top 25 scorers nationally this season.
Akron puts the ball in the basket at a high rate, scoring an average of 84.6 points per game, which is 10th best in the nation.
The game tips off at 4:30 p.m., and is followed by the men's basketball team squaring off against Detroit at 7 p.m.
