      ORLANDO, Florida — Nic Moore scored 21 points, hitting 5 of 9 beyond the arc, and SMU defeated Central Florida 70-61 on Sunday.

      SMU (12-4, 3-1 American) scored first and never trailed. A 7-0 spurt midway through the first — including Moore's 3-pointer— turned a two-point game into an 18-9 SMU advantage. UCF scored the last six points of the half and trailed 30-26 at intermission.

      Moore drilled a pair of 3-pointers on consecutive possessions at the start of the second to push the lead to 10 points and UCF (8-7, 1-3) never got closer than seven the rest of the way.

      SMU shot 57 percent, made 6 of 14 3-point attempts and had 19 assists.

      UCF was paced by three players with 11 points: Brandon Goodwin, B.J. Taylor and Adonys Henriquez.
