Cincinnati Storylines
-The Bearcats can wrap up the pre-Holidays portion of their schedule at 10-2 with a win over Chicago State today. It would mark the fifth time in eight seasons under UC head coach Mick Cronin that the Bearcats had at least 10 wins before Dec. 25. The 2010-11 and 2012-13 Bearcats were 12-0 at the break.
-UC has held the opposition under 50 points in each of its last two games for the first time since a 54-41 win over Savannah State (Nov. 24) preceded a 63-34 victory over Dayton (Nov. 27) in 2010.
-The Bearcats allowed only 23 made field goals last week (12 to Middle Tennessee and 11 to Pittsburgh). It marked the lowest combined field goals by UC opponents in back-to-back games during the Mick Cronin era.
-The Bearcats haven’t surrendered more than 67 points in a game all season.
-Cincinnati is 47-4 in its last 51 regular-season nonconference home games.
-Sean Kilpatrick entered Sunday leading the American in scoring (18.7 points per game) and was tied for first in three-pointers made (2.7). He also ranked among the league leaders in three other categories: free-throw shooting (fifth at 84.6 percent), three-point shooting (12th at 40.5 percent) and steals (13th at 1.5). He is among the nation’s Top 50 players on both the Wooden and Naismith Award lists.
-With 1,650 career points entering the Chicago State game, Kilpatrick needs 17 points to move into seventh place on the UC all-time scoring list, passing Ron Bonham (1,666 points from 1962-64).
-Justin Jackson averaged 14.0 points, 10.5 rebounds and shot 81.3 percent from the field (13 of 16) to go with six blocks and five steals in UC’s pair of wins last week. He netted a game-high 12 points against Pittsburgh and posted his third double-double of the season (and his career) with 16 points and 12 rebounds against Middle Tennessee.
