ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Sean Kilpatrick hit six 3-pointers and scored 23 points as No. 7 Cincinnati dominated Central Florida in a 77-49 victory Wednesday night.

The Bearcats (24-3, 13-1 American Athletic) have won 17 of 18 going into their conference showdown with No. 11 Louisville on Saturday. Justin Jackson added 10 points and seven rebounds for Cincinnati, which beat UCF for the second time this season.

Central Florida's offense struggled mightily in the first half, allowing Cincinnati to build an early 20-point lead. The struggling Knights never got it back to single digits in the second half and finished with 16 turnovers.

Isaiah Sykes led the Knights with 13 points and 10 rebounds. UCF (10-14, 2-11) has lost 10 of 11.
