Cincinnati Beats No. 18 Memphis 69-53

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Sean Kilpatrick scored 11 of his 18 points down the stretch and Cincinnati overcame early shooting woes to beat No. 18 Memphis 69-53 on Saturday.

Kilpatrick’s scoring surge provided enough of a buffer to extend Cincinnati’s winning streak to six straight, while Memphis saw an end to a three-game winning streak.

Justin Jackson finished with 13 points on 6-of-10 shooting and eight rebounds for Cincinnati (13-2, 2-0 American Athletic Conference) and Shaquille Thomas had 10 points.

Joe Jackson led Memphis (10-3, 1-1) with 13 points, but only had two in the second half. Michael Dixon added 12 points but was 4 of 12 from the field.

Cincinnati broke open a close game in the latter stages of the second half as Kilpatrick began scoring and Memphis was stymied with 24 percent shooting in the final 20 minutes.
