CINCINNATI -- Sean Kilpatrick overcame an off-target performance by scoring 10 of his 18 points in the closing minutes on Sunday, rallying No. 13 Cincinnati to its 14th straight victory, 50-45 over South Florida.

 

The Bearcats (21-2, 10-0 American Athletic) trailed by three points with 8 minutes left. Kilpatrick, who leads the conference in scoring, 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. Justin Jackson added 15 points as Cincinnati won its 17th straight home game, 15 of them this season.

 

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.
