    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- A.J. Rompza hit two difficult shots down the stretch and Central Florida held Drake scoreless over the final 6 minutes for a 59-50 victory on Sunday.

    Isaac Sosa led the Knights (4-1) with 15 points, all on 3-point field goals, and P.J. Gaynor added 11 points in only 17 minutes.

    But it was Rompza, a 5-foot-9 sophomore guard not known for his scoring, and freshman Dave Diakate who stood out with the game on the line in the Glenn Wilkes Classic.

    Rompza made a shot high off the glass to put UCF up 53-50 with 4:57 remaining, and followed that up with a scoop shot under a taller defender. Diakate, who finished with 10 points and eight rebounds, sealed the win with a dunk off a steal.

    Adam Templeton had 15 points for Drake (1-4).

    The Bulldogs led just once after halftime, when two free throws by Ben Simons gave them a 46-44 advantage with 10:20 to go.
