Philadelphia • Sean Kilpatrick hadn't scored in more than 13 minutes, and No. 15 Cincinnati had just blown every bit of a 19-point second-half lead against Temple.

"I was just trying to get fouled," he said. "The time was running down, they switched on the pick-and-roll, and the big man was on me. I just drove at him."

The big man was Anthony Lee, who picked up his fifth foul after catching Kilpatrick on the arm with 7.2 seconds remaining. Kilpatrick went to the line and promptly ended his scoring drought by making the game-winning free throws.



Kilpatrick finished with a season-high 29 points and the Bearcats (19-2, 8-0 AAC) staved off a Temple comeback to remain undefeated in the American Athletic Conference with an 80-76 victory Sunday.

Dalton Pepper scored a career-high 33 points for the Owls (5-13, 0-7), who have lost eight straight. —
