No. 15 Cincinnati beats No. 20 Memphis 97-84

CINCINNATI (AP) - Sean Kilpatrick scored a season-high 34 points in his final home game, and a trio of senior starters steadied No. 15 Cincinnati to a 97-84 victory over No. 20 Memphis on Thursday night that left the American Athletic Conference race tied with a game to go.

The Bearcats (25-5, 14-3 AAC) remained tied atop the first-year league with No. 11 Louisville. The Cardinals won 84-71 at No. 18 Southern Methodist on Wednesday night and finish at home against No. 19 Connecticut. The Bearcats close the regular season at Rutgers.

With a chance to break the race open, the Tigers (22-8, 11-6) fell apart in the opening minutes and never fully recovered. Cincinnati's seniors kept the Bearcats ahead the whole game.

Forward Titus Rubles had a career-high 24 points, and forward Justin Jackson added 13 points and nine rebounds. 

Joe Jackson scored 21 points for Memphis.
