Kilpatrick has 23, Cincinnati beats Campbell 81-62


AP Sports Writer

CINCINNATI (AP) - Sean Kilpatrick scored a season-high 23 points, and Justin Jackson had a career-high 19 on Wednesday night, helping Cincinnati stay unbeaten with an 81-62 victory over Campbell.

The Bearcats (4-0) never trailed, pulling ahead by as many as 23 points while shooting 63 percent from the field.

Kilpatrick steadied the offense, going 9 of 12 from the field. He also had the most impressive basket, banking the ball off the backboard as he fell in the second half.

Jackson dominated inside, getting put-backs and bank shots. He had nine rebounds and five of Cincinnati's eight blocks, coming up just short of his second career double-double.

The Fighting Camels (2-3) lost their third in a row. Andrew Ryan scored 17 points and Darius Leonard added 16. Campbell shot 43 percent from the field overall against a defense that had limited its first three opponents to 33 percent.
