    ORLANDO, Fla. -- Jermaine Taylor's 27 points led four Central Florida players in double figures in an 87-69 victory over Marshall on Sunday.

    Central Florida (13-6, 3-2 Conference USA) shot 58.3 percent from the floor (28 of 48) in the win. The Knights led by as many as 22 points in the second half, fueled by a 12-0 run midway through the period.

    A.J. Tyler scored 15 points, Tony Davis had 12 points and Isaac Sosa finished with 10.

    Chris Lutz led the Thundering Herd (9-10, 2-3) with 20 points. Dago Pena finished with 13 points and Markel Humphrey and Shaquille Johnson had 12 apiece.

    An 11-2 run in the final 3:40 of the opening quarter, including two 3-pointers by Taylor, propelled Central Florida to a 50-41 halftime advantage. Taylor missed five of his first six shots from the floor, but went 5-for-5 over the final 5:41 of the first half.
