Skill begins with SK

I've always liked Sean Kilpatrick.

From the moment I first saw him playing summer ball at Woodward High School, I knew he was a gamer.

He had charisma and a shot and wasn't afraid to use either.

Even though he's friends with Lance Stephenson and Lance had crazy skills, I thought UC's team chemistry that summer was better with Sean than with Lance.

At any rate, I'm glad Sean is the one still here.

If you missed the Connecticut game Jan. 18 (and I missed the actual winning shot since I was coaching a basketball team at the time) you missed Kilpatrick taking Huskie fans from ecstasy to agony in a matter of seconds.

Shabazz Napier had just hit a long trey to tie the game at 67. then with 9.5 seconds left, UC inbounded the ball to Sean.

Seven seconds later, "SK" hoisted a three that silenced the crowd and the Bearcats notched the 70-67 win over No. 11 in Storrs, Connecticut.

You can't spell skill without "SK" (nice idea for a column).

I caught up with "Killa" the day after the big shot at Fifth Third Arena:
