    Wright on: UCF guard keys win over Cincinnati
    By Iliana Limón Romero Orlando Sentinel

    UCF guard Kay Kay Wright refused to lose Sunday.
    Wright, an Orlando Jones High alum, drove to the basket and hit a layup with five seconds remaining. She then shifted her focus to defense, stealing the ball to seal a 56-55 win over Cincinnati at CFE Arena.

    UCF (14-2, 3-0 American Athletic Conference) remains No. 2 in the league standings behind national power UConn after dispatching much improved Cincinnati (9-7, 1-2 AAC).

    The Bearcats led most of the game, going up by as many as 10 points in the second quarter.

    Facing a 45-40 deficit to open the fourth quarter, UCF started the final stretch on a 6-0 run and kept pushing until Wright’s game-winning bucket.
    Wright finished with 25 points, six rebounds, four steals and three assists.
