Kilpatrick chipped in 15 points, 10 boards and three assists for the Bearcats
(4-0), who will face Iowa State in Las Vegas in the semifinals of this
tournament on Friday.
"Although I was disappointed in our defense in the second half, I was happy
with the fact that we were able to get under some game pressure," Cincinnati

Darren White had 22 points and seven rebounds and Trey Freeman poured in 17
points to go with eight assists for the Fighting Camels (2-3), who have
dropped three of their last four.
"I think the obvious difference in the game was rebounding, particularly from
the wing players of Cincinnati. They've got 17 rebounds between their two and
their three, which is pretty incredible," Campbell head coach Robbie Laing
said. "If you look at the assists for each team, we had to play a lot of one

imposing defense we have seen to date."
Kilpatrick's jumper gave Cincinnati a 29-15 lead with just under 10 minutes
left in the first half, and the Bearcats' lead grew to 46-28 at the break
after Jeremiah Davis III nailed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.
Cincinnati pushed its cushion to 60-36 three minutes into the second half, but
Campbell was able to pull within 75-64 after a pair of White free throws at
the 5:20 mark.
It would be as close as the Fighting Camels would get as they were outscored
16-8 the rest of the way.
Cincinnati turned it over 14 times and had just 13 assists ... The Bearcats
have outscored their opponents 366-228 over their first four games ... This
was the first ever meeting between the schools.
