UC beats Xavier in 'Crosstown Classic'

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

 

Sean Kilpatrick scored 25 points and led a second-half surge that carried No. 11 Cincinnati to a 60-45 victory over Xavier on Wednesday night, renewing their crosstown rivalry amicably one year after it was marred by a brawl.

Cincinnati (11-0) won its 18th straight game at a downtown arena that has become the rivalry's stage for the next two years, an attempt to take the nasty edge off the annual game.

No technical fouls, no showing off, no on-court dust-ups. It was back to being a good old rivalry.

And the Bearcats got the better of it in the second half behind Kilpatrick, who scored nine points in a 17-4 run that put them ahead to stay. Travis Taylor led Xavier (7-3) with 12 points.

Xavier and Cincinnati fans were seated on opposite sides of the arena. Both schools hoped for a clean, exciting game so they could finally get past last year's ugliness.
