No. 13 Cincinnati beats South Florida 50-45
CINCINNATI 50, SOUTH FLORIDA 45

By JOE KAY
AP Sports Writer

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Sean Kilpatrick wasn't feeling good. His shot
showed the symptoms.

The American Athletic Conference's top scorer was way off on
Sunday, struggling through one of his toughest games. He found a
little energy at the end, scoring 10 of his 18 points in the
closing minutes as No. 13 Cincinnati rallied for a 50-45 victory
over South Florida.

The Bearcats (21-2, 10-0) got their 14th straight victory by
following Kilpatrick's lead.

"He's going to come and perform every night, sick or not sick,"
said forward Justin Jackson, who added 15 points. "It's what I
expected out of him."

Cincinnati trailed by three points with 8 minutes left.
Kilpatrick took over the game and extended Cincinnati's best
start since the 2001-02 season, when it was in Conference USA.

The senior guard made six free throws and two driving lay-ins,
scoring 10 of Cincinnati's final 12 points. Cincinnati survived
the close call at home, where it has won 17 in a row, including
15 this season.

Kilpatrick was sick the past two days, missing practice on
Saturday. He still wasn't feeling very well on Sunday.

"It's tough," said Kilpatrick, who averages 19.5 points per
game. "Playing under the weather is terrible."

Kilpatrick finished 5 of 16 from the field and only 2 of 8
beyond the arc. He moved ahead of Danny Fortson and Deonta
Vaughn into third place on Cincinnati's career scoring list with
1,891 points. Oscar Robertson scored 2,973, and Steve Logan is
second at 1,985.

"The guy's going to be - knock on wood - the second guy in the
history of this program to score over 2,000 points," coach Mick
Cronin said. "He's maybe the most underrated great player who
has ever played here."

South Florida (11-11, 2-7) suffered another close loss to the
Bearcats, who broke open a tie game for a 61-54 win on Jan. 18.
Chris Perry had 13 points and Victor Rudd scored 11 for the
Bulls, who have lost their past 11 games in Cincinnati.

"I still feel like we could have beaten them twice, at home and
here," Rudd said. "I feel like we let it slip away in the last
three minutes of the game, and they played great in both games."

South Florida missed six of its last seven shots - five of them
from behind the arc - and had three turnovers down the stretch,
allowing the Bearcats to get the lead and hold on. The Bulls are
last in the AAC in 3-point shooting, making only 26.2 percent,
so they played into Cincinnati's hands by firing away during the
final minutes.

"We went brain-dead," coach Stan Heath said. "We took (the 3s),
we probably shouldn't have. A couple of those, the clock was
winding down and so we just got stuck with that shot."

South Florida was coming off a 78-71 win over SMU that snapped a
four-game losing streak. The Bulls haven't beaten a ranked team
since Feb. 29, 2012, at Louisville.

The Bearcats were coming off a defining 69-66 win at No. 12
Louisville on Thursday night that left them in control of the
AAC. Jackson returned from a sprained left ankle and helped the
Bearcats pull it out at the end.

The forward was Cincinnati's best option at the start on Sunday,
hitting three close-up baskets during an opening 11-2 run. The
Bulls were flustered, missing their first three shots and
turning it over twice. They called a timeout, went back on the
court and couldn't get the ball past midcourt, turning it over
on a 10-second call.

Rudd got South Florida going, hitting a driving layup and a
3-pointer that gave the Bulls a 14-13 lead. Both teams missed
open shots during a ragged opening half, with Cincinnati ahead
24-18 at the break. It was the fewest points South Florida had
scored in an opening half.

The Bulls intensified their defense at the start of the second
half and pulled ahead. Martino Brock's three-point play and
Perry's layup gave South Florida a 27-26 lead. The Bearcats
missed four of their five shots in the half and turned it over
six times, helping the Bulls to pull ahead.

Kilpatrick missed eight of his first 10 shots. His 3-pointer
started an 8-2 spurt that put the Bearcats back ahead.

Not for long. Perry drove for a basket and hit a jumper that
gave the Bulls their biggest lead, 39-36, with 7:18 to go. Perry
raised his arms toward the student section and motioned for some
cheering as he ran down the court. At that point, the Bulls were
shooting 50 percent in the second half.

Kilpatrick took it from there.
