(FOX19) - Two Cincinnati Bearcats have earned honors from the American Athletic Conference, UC said Tuesday.

Senior guard Sean Kilpatrick was named an unanimous first team All-American Athletic Conference selection and senior forward Justin Jackson was tabbed second team all-conference by the league's coaches.

UC said it marks the first time since 1999 that UC has had players named first and second all-conference at the end of the regular season. That year Kenyon Martin and Pete Mickeal were tabbed first team All-Conference USA while Melvin Levett earned second team distinction.

Kilpatrick is the university's first unanimous first team all-conference selection since Steve Logan was named Conference USA Player of the Year in 2002.
