Bearcat of the Week: Sean Kilpatrick


There were few things that went well offensively for Cincinnati last night as we can only tip our cap to Xavier’s suffocating defense for causing that. But Sean Kilpatrick was the one shining light amid a relatively bad evening on that side of the floor. He wasn’t exactly efficient from the floor, making just 2 of 10 from three and going 10 – 27 overall from the field. Still with such an ugly line Killa put up 25 points and carried the Bearcats on his back for most of the 2nd half. He reeled off two impressive 7-point scoring spurts that put UC ahead and kept them ahead for the rest of the game. It was just the kind of performance Cincinnati was asking for, and quite frankly expect out of Kilpatrick, to overcome a stingy Xavier defense and lead the Bearcats to their 49th win over the Musketeers in this series.
