What a weekend!
If you take pride in Orlando sports, this was the weekend for you.
Jonathan Isaac played sparingly in Friday and Saturday's games vs the Pistons and Grizzlies, but did enough to impress Magic fans. While looking lost at times, Isaac's innate ability to get after the ball on defense was on full display, he even blocked a shot attempt at the end of regulation to help the Magic beat Memphis.
Shaquem Griffin was possibly the single most impressive player at the NFL Combine. His hand condition is what brought the eye-balls on Saturday and Sunday, but it was his impressive athletic ability that kept them watching. Griffin posted the fasted 40-time for a linebacker in the last 15 years with a 4.38. His 20 reps on the 225lb bench press wasn't bad either. No question he made UCF and this city proud.
Orlando City Stadium was buzzing on Saturday night with the return of the new-look Lions. That excitement was quickly dampened by a DC United goal, followed by an Orlando City red-card. That red-card lead to an 11 on 10 matchup for half of the contest. But, in the final moments of stoppage time, Orlando City put one in the back of the net for a thrilling draw.
UCF Women's Hoops is nothing to scoff at either. Katie Henderson's team took down the Temple Owls 77-70 yesterday to advance in the AAC tournament. They'll play USF today in the semi-finals @ 4:30pm with the winner taking on either Cincinnati or UConn in the AAC Tournament Finals.
