    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Mike O'Donnell led four Central Florida scorers in double figures with 15 points and Josh Peppers and Justin Rose added 12 points each as the Knights defeated Norfolk State 63-47 Friday.

    Central Florida (5-2) used a 14-3 run midway through the second half to pull away from the Spartans (2-6). The Knights led by as many as 17 at 48-31.

    Norfolk State took a 23-22 lead with 18:33 left on a jump shot by Calvin Brown, but a pair of three-pointers by Peppers and one by Justin Rose put Central Florida up 31-25.

    A dunk by Peppers with 14 minutes remaining brought the crowd to its feet and put the Knights up by seven. Rose added five rebounds and six assists for Central Florida. Marcus Johnson finished with 11 points. Calvin Brown finished with a game-high 16 points for Norfolk State.

    The Knights led 20-19 at halftime despite hitting only two field goals and scoring six points in the final 10:25. Central Florida led by as many as seven points in the first 20 minutes.
