2013-14 POSTGAME NOTES
Cincinnati (10-2) 102, Chicago State (5-7) 62
December 23, 2013 // Fifth Third Arena // Cincinnati, Ohio // Attendance: 5,564

Series Notes

  • Cincinnati has won all four meetings with Chicago State. The Bearcats took the last contest, 95-60, two years ago to the date.

Team Notes

  • Head coach Mick Cronin used the starting lineup of Ge'Lawn Guyn (G), Sean Kilpatrick (G), Shaquille Thomas (F), Titus Rubles (F) and Justin Jackson (F) for the 12th time in 12 games this season.
  • Cincinnati used a 13-0 run late in the first half (5:12-0:25) to build a 48-27 lead. It marked the 18th run of at least 8-0 for the Bearcats this season. 
  • The 48-first half points scored by UC tied the most on the season, while also marking two straight halves the Bearcats scored 48 (2nd half versus Middle Tennessee). Cincinnati topped that mark in the second half with 54, setting a new season record for points in a half.
  • The Bearcats’ 34 three-point field goal attempts are the most since taking 35 attempts from  beyond the arc against Chicago State in 2011. The 34 tries tie for sixth-most all-time by a UC team.
  • The +47 rebounding margin posted by Cincinnati was a school record. The previous best was a +45 mark against Tennessee in the 1955-56 season.
  • Kilpatrick (21 points, 10 rebounds), Jackson (19 points, 13 rebounds) and Jermaine Sanders (14 points, 13 rebounds) all recorded double-doubles for Cincinnati. The last time three Bearcats recorded double-doubles in the same game was Dec. 8, 2001 vs. U.S. Coppin State.  
  • The 69 rebounds UC pulled down were a Fifth Third Arena record. The previous best was 56 against Chicago State in 1992-93 and Rutgers in 1996-97. The previous best for UC under Cronin was 56 rebounds versus North Carolina A&T on Nov. 18, 2012.
  • Cincinnati had seven players score in double figures: Kilpatrick (21), Jackson (19), Thomas (14), Jermaine Sanders (14), Guyn (10), Troy Caupain (10) and Kevin Johnson (10). The last time seven Bearcats scored at least 10 points was Dec. 1, 2009, against Texas Southern. That day Rashad Bishop (14), Dion Dixon (13), Steve Toyloy (13), Deonta Vaughn (12), Darnell Wilks (12), JaQuon Parker (10) and Yancy Gates (10) all reached the mark.
  • Three UC players eclipsed 10 rebounds in the game. Jackson and Sanders grabbed 13 each, while Kilpatrick pulled down 10 boards. The last time UC had even two players record 10 or more rebounds in was Feb. 24, 2010, when Ibrahima Thomas and Lance Stephenson each recorded 10 boards.
  • The 102 points scored by UC tied for the most under Cronin. UC also poured in 102 in a 102-60 victory over Mississippi Valley State on Nov. 13, 2012.
  • Cincinnati's 25 assists are the second-most under Cronin. The top mark was 27 helpers against Toledo on Nov. 18, 2009.
  • In holding Chicago State to 62 points, UC extends its streak of holding an opponent under 70 to 19 consecutive games. That mark is tied for the second longest such streak in school history. The record is 35 straight games from March 24, 1962 until Dec. 20, 1963.
  • UC improved to 9-0 at home for the first time since 2010-11. The Bearcats are 48-4 in their last 52 regular-season, nonconference home games.

 

Individual Notes

  • With 21 points, Kilpatrick now totals 1,671 for his career. The senior passed Ron Bonham (1,666) for seventh all-time at UC.
  • Kilpatrick played in his 118th consecutive game. He is 11 games from cracking the program's top-10 in games played and stands third in consecutive games played.
  • Kilpatrick eclipsed the 500 career rebound mark. He collected 10, giving him 509 for his career. It marked the third-career double-figure rebounding game for the senior and just the third double-double of his storied career. The 10 rebounds also matched a career high for Kilpatrick, with most recently grabbing 10 against Campbell on Nov. 20, 2012.
  • With four three-pointers, Kilpatrick now has 254 in his career. He needs four more makes from beyond the arc to crack the program's top-five. Fifth is currently Logan, who drilled 258 from 1998-2002.
  • With four blocks tonight, Jackson moved into fourth all-time at Cincinnati. He passes Donald Little, who had 153 career rejections. Jackson now has 156 for his career.
  • Jackson used 19 points and 13 rebounds to post his second consecutive double-double and fourth of both the season and his career. The 19 points matched a career best after scoring that total against Campbell on Nov. 20, 2013. His 13 boards topped a career best, with his previous mark of 12 coming in the last outing against Middle Tennessee.
  • With 14 points and 13 rebounds, Sanders had his first career double-double, while also setting a career best mark in rebounds. His 14 points, five made field goals, three made three-pointers and 13 rebounds all set or matched career highs.
  • Rubles set a career-best with three blocks. He also matched his career-best with five assists. He last had five against Syracuse on Jan. 21, 2013. 
  • Thomas had a career-high 14 points. He previously had a top mark of 13 against Xavier on Dec. 14, 2013.
  • Johnson scored a career-best 10 points, eclipsing the previous best of nine versus USC Upstate for the freshman.
  • Lawrence's three assists were a best in the career of the freshman.
  • Guyn's four rebounds matched his career best. He last had four boards against North Carolina A&T on Nov. 18, 2012.
