Cincinnati Storylines
-UC enters Tuesday’s game against Temple on a 14-game home win streak. The Bearcats won their final two home games last season and are 12-0 at Fifth Third Arena in 2013-14. It’s the fourth-longest win streak at Fifth Third Arena (since start of 1989-90 season).
-A win Tuesday against Temple would make the Bearcats 5-0 in conference action for the first time since the 2002-03 campaign when UC started 6-0 in Conference USA play.
-A win over Temple would give the Bearcats a 16-2 overall record and match UC’s best start to a season under eighth-year head coach Mick Cronin. UC also started 16-2 during the 2010-11 season en route to a 26-9 record while advancing to the third round of the NCAA tournament (lost to eventual national champion UConn.)
-The Bearcats haven’t surrendered more than 67 points in a game all season and have held their opponent under 70 points for 24 consecutive games  - the nation’s longest active streak. The school record is 35 straight games spanning three seasons, starting with the 1962 NCAA championship game and concluding on Dec. 20, 1963.
-The Bearcats ranked sixth in the nation, allowing only 56.5 points a game according to NCAA statistics through Jan. 9. Entering Tuesday’s game UC is giving up an average of 56.2 points. It marks the fewest points allowed by a Bearcats squad since the 1962-63 season (52.9) when UC finished second in the NCAA tournament.
-Sean Kilpatrick leads the American in scoring (18.4 points per game) and is third in three-pointers made (2.2 per game). With 1,756 career points, Kilpatrick needs seven points to move into sixth place on the UC all-time scoring list, passing Pat Cummings (1,762 points from 1975-79). He was named to the American honor roll on Monday.
