CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Even Oscar Robertson wanted to see more of the Sean Kilpatrick show. The Hall of Famer sat courtside and watched the senior guard score 26 points and get a team-high 12 rebounds on Thursday night, rallying No. 7 Cincinnati to a 63-58 victory over No. 22 Connecticut. The Bearcats (22-2, 11-0 American Athletic) got their 15th straight win with Kilpatrick finishing it off at the free throw line in the closing seconds. During a late timeout, Robertson raised his hand in a shooting motion toward Kilpatrick, who knew what he meant. Kilpatricks response? A "take-it-easy" motion. "He kept giving me the signal to shoot," Kilpatrick said. "I told him to relax." The Bearcats trailed for most of the game, their first with a No. 7 ranking that is their highest in 10 years. A crowd of 12,432 -- their biggest of the season -- watched them win. Cincinnati has won 18 straight at home, including all 16 this season. The Bearcats are off to their best start in 12 years. "Thats what weve been hoping for," forward Titus Rubles said. "Its good to see the city excited for Cincinnati basketball again. We definitely enjoyed the crowd today. It was a big factor in helping us with our energy." Justin Jackson had six of his 15 points and blocked a shot during a 13-4 run that rallied Cincinnati midway through the second half. Jermaine Sanders two free throws with 18.5 seconds left gave Cincinnati a 61-58 lead. UConns Niels Giffey missed a three-point attempt, and Kilpatrick got the rebound, was fouled and made both free throws. "The mark of great players is that they rise to the occasion," Bearcats coach Mick Cronin said. "He has the ability to rise to the occasion." Shabazz Napier scored 16 points for the Huskies (17-5, 5-4) who were playing their highest-ranked opponent this season. They are 2-2 against Top 25 teams, with wins over Florida and Memphis and losses to Louisville and Cincinnati. Two hours before tip-off, Cincinnati introduced Mike Bohn as its next athletic director. His top priority: Get the Bearcats into a better conference. Cincinnati and Connecticut tried to move to the Atlantic Coast Conference, but were rebuffed. Instead, Louisville will move from the American Athletic into the ACC next season. The game matched two of the AACs top guards. Kilpatrick leads the league at 19.4 points per game, while Napier averages 17.9 points and 6.0 rebounds. Shabazz got the better of it early. Kilpatrick, who played all 40 minutes, rallied the Bearcats at the end. "Justin Jackson and Kilpatrick took over the game," UConn coach Kevin Ollie said. "It was a heck of a performance by (Kilpatrick). We couldnt get him out of the game. They just took it to us in the second half." Napier went only 2 of 12 beyond the arc and missed a three-point attempt that could have put the Huskies ahead with 30 seconds to go. Connecticut led for all but 40 seconds in the first half with its guards darting through Cincinnatis defence for layups and assists. Ryan Boatright scored six consecutive points as UConn pulled ahead 21-15. He fell hard on his left shoulder while going for the ball and left the game grimacing. He returned a few minutes later and scored only three points the rest of the game. Napier made a driving bank shot high off the backboard, then drove under the basket and passed outside to Giffey for a wide-open three-pointer that built UConns lead to 26-18. Another three by Giffey gave the Huskies a 10-point lead. The Huskies made four of their first six shots in the second half to hold the lead. Omar Calhouns baseline jumper put the Huskies ahead 42-34. Jackson then led the Bearcats on the 13-4 run. He emphatically blocked a shot to set up a fast break that culminated in Kilpatricks dunk. Jackson picked up a loose ball on the Bearcats next possession and dunked, then followed with a driving bank shot for a 47-46 lead with 7:34 left. Kilpatrick hit another three that started a six-point spurt and gave Cincinnati its biggest lead, 53-49. The Bearcats stayed ahead the rest of the way. Matt Miazga USA Jersey . "I never commented to anyone that I wanted out," he explained. "My heart is with this group and making the playoffs." Kesler added that the rumours are "completely false" that he asked to be traded - recently or ever. Tim Howard Jersey . It certainly isnt a coincidence that Dwight Howard has scored at least 20 points in each game of the winning streak. http://www.usasoccerauthority.com/timothy-weah-usa-jersey/ . Russia has spent about $51 billion to deliver the Sochi Olympics, which run Feb. 7-23, making them the most expensive games ever, even though as a winter event it hosts many fewer athletes than summer games do. Nick Rimando Jersey . The Calgary Stampeders announced both moves on Wednesday. Parker played 17 regular season games with the Stampeders in 2013, setting career-highs in catches (21) and yards (217). Geoff Cameron USA Jersey . - Justin Turner is at his best with runners in scoring position, and he delivered again in a big spot for the Los Angeles Dodgers.Indianapolis, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - The Butler Bulldogs will conclude a two-game homestand at Hinkle Fieldhouse on Monday night, as they face off against the Kennesaw State Owls in a non-conference affair. Although KSUs 3-6 record isnt impressive by most programs standards, its taking steps in the right direction after going just 6-25 in 2013-14 and 3-27 the campaign before that. The Owls closed out November on a three-game winning streak but have since dropped back-to-back games at FIU (59-38) and at home against Kent State (58-46). Butler began the season unranked but made a splash with a third-place finish in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament, beating North Carolina (74-66) and Georgetown (64-58) in the process. The Bulldogs have won three in a row to improve to 7-1, most recently downing Northwestern at home on Saturday, 65-56. This marks the first-ever meeting between the programs. The Owls fell flat on their home floor their last time out. Despite holding Kent State to just 43.1 percent field goal shooting and 15 turnovers, they could not take advantage on the other end of the court, shooting 32.6 percent with 19 turnovers as they suffered the 12-point loss. Delbert Love and Bernard Morena were the only players to finish in double figures with 10 points apiece. The lackluster showing was unfortunately nothing new for KSU, which shoots only 39.5 percent from the field this season for 61.1 while allowing 73.4 ppg. Its also hindered by poor margins in both the turnover (-5.7) and rebounding (-44.dddddddddddd6) battles. Yonel Brown is one of the teams few bright spots with 13.0 ppg on 40.6 percent from 3-point range and 88.4 percent at the foul line. Nigel Pruitt (11.0 ppg), Love (9.2 ppg) and Orlando Coleman (8.4 ppg, 6.6 rpg) have also been solid. The Bulldogs opened up a six-point halftime lead versus Northwestern over the weekend and never surrendered that advantage in the second stanza. Although they made just one 3-pointer on the afternoon and struggled to connect from the free-throw line (16-of-28), they made up for it by shooting 49 percent from the field overall and by taking care of the ball with only nine turnovers. Kellen Dunham led the way with 19 points on 6-of-9 from the floor and 6-of-6 at the stripe. Roosevelt Jones helped out in a myriad of ways with 12 points, six rebounds, four assists, three blocks and a steal, while Kameron Woods tallied seven points and nine boards. Butlers success this season has come thanks mostly to its outstanding play on the defensive end of the floor, as it allows just 54.6 ppg on 38.2 percent field goal shooting. Its a showing thats more than enough to support a stellar offense that shoots greater than 45 percent for 71.9 ppg. Dunham is the go-to scoring option with 16.8 ppg and is the teams only viable 3-point threat, as he makes 2.4 long-range buckets per game at a 46.3 percent clip. Jones brings 10.1 ppg, 4.6 rpg and 5.1 apg to the mix and Kelan Martin (9.8 ppg) and Andrew Chrabascz (9.0 ppg) are strong complementary options. ' ' '
