Tuesday, January 10, 2012
WASHINGTON (AP) — Sean Kilpatrick scored a career-high 27 points, and Cincinnati went 6 for 6 from the free throw line in the final 70 seconds Monday night to upset No. 11 Georgetown 68-64.
Kilpatrick and Dion Dixon each had four of Cincinnati's 13 steals as the Bearcats (13-4, 3-1 Big East) forced Georgetown into 17 turnovers, matching the Hoyas' season-high. Cincinnati has won eight of nine.
Hollis Thompson and Jason Clark scored 14 points apiece and combined to go 11 for 13 from the field for the Hoyas (13-3, 3-2), whose 59 percent shooting was undone by carelessness with the ball. Georgetown has lost two straight after an 11-game winning streak.
Cashmere Wright broke a 62-62 tie with two free throws with 1:07 remaining — his only points of the game.
NO. 17 CONNECTICUT 64, WEST VIRGINIA 57
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Jeremy Lamb had 25 points and eight rebounds as Connecticut overcame a 10-point second-half deficit to snap a two-game skid.
Andre Drummond added 20 points and 11 boards for UConn (13-3, 3-2 Big East). Huskies coach Jim Calhoun was coaching his first home game since serving a three-game suspension for NCAA recruiting violations.
Connecticut, which lost at Seton Hall and Rutgers last week, dropped nine spots in the Top 25 earlier in the day.
Kevin Jones, the Big East's leading scorer and rebounder, had 22 points for West Virginia (12-5, 3-2).
UConn trailed by 46-36 with just over 11 minutes left before Lamb's dunk sparked a run. His jumper with 2 1/2 minutes left put the Huskies up for good at 57-55.
