CINCINNATI (AP) - Sean Kilpatrick scored 14 points and the Cincinnati Bearcats extended their season-opening win streak to 14 - their longest in 12 seasons - with a 70-53 Big East win over Seton Hall on Friday night.

Ibrahima Thomas scored 12 points while just missing his third double-double of the season and fourth of his career with nine rebounds. Rashad Bishop added 10 points as Cincinnati improved to 2-0 in Big East for the second year in a row.

The season-opening win streak is the longest for Cincinnati (14-0) since the 1998-1999 team opened 15-0. The win streak is the Bearcats' longest in any one season since the 2001-2002 team won 20 straight.

The Bearcats next take the court against arch-rival Xavier in the annual Skyline Chili Crosstown Shootout at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 6, at Fifth Third Arena.
