Chicago State vs Cincinnati

Cincinnati 95, Chicago St. 60


CINCINNATI (AP) - Sean Kilpatrick scored 21 points to lead six Cincinnati players in double figures as the red-hot Bearcats rolled to a 95-60 win over winless Chicago State on Friday night.

Cashmere Wright scored 14 before leaving the game with more than 10 minutes remaining, and four players - Jeremiah Davis III, Dion Dixon, Justin Jackson and Ge'Lawn Guyn - added 11 each for Cincinnati before a crowd of 5,321 at 13,176-seat Fifth Third Arena.

Cincinnati (9-3), which scored 101 points in each of its two previous games, fell short of becoming the first team in school history to score at least 100 in three consecutive games. The Bearcats, who are off until meeting Oklahoma next Thursday, set season highs with 16 3-pointers and 35 attempts.

Jeremy Robinson scored 18 points and D'Jari Nelson had 10 to lead Chicago State (0-13), which was playing the first of four consecutive road games.

Cincinnati is 4-0 since Yancy Gates, Octavius Ellis and Cheikh Mbodj were suspended for three games each following the brawl with then-No. 8 Xavier on Dec. 10 that prompted officials to stop the game with 9.4 seconds remaining. The 76-53 loss to the Musketeers was the Bearcats' only setback in their last seven games.

Kilpatrick scored 11 points, Wright and Dixon had nine each and the Bearcats, who connected on a combined 29 3-pointers in their previous two games, went 9 for 20 from long range while building a 48-24 halftime lead. They ended the half on a 21-2 run and kept the Cougars scoreless for more than five minutes.
