You cannot win games when as a team you shoot 26% from three… that ranks South Florida Men’s Basketball as number 350 of 351 schools in 3-point percentage. We should’ve won this game. The turning point came via an half court inbounds play that resulted in a ridiculous three attempt by G Shemiye McLendon with just under a minute remaining with Cincinnati up 48-44. Did I mention McLendon is 0-9 on the season from beyond the arc? (Video below)

No. 13 Cincinnati beats South Florida 50-45
CINCINNATI — Sean Kilpatrick overcame an off-target performance by scoring 10 of his 18 points in the closing minutes on Sunday, rallying No. 13 Cincinnati to its 14th straight victory, 50-45 over South Florida in front of a crowd of 10,367.
The Bearcats (21-2, 10-0 American Athletic) trailed by three points with 8 minutes left. Kilpatrick, who leads the conference in scoring, took over the game and extended Cincinnati’s best start since the 2001-02 season, when it was in Conference USA.
The senior guard made six free throws and two driving lay-ins, scoring 10 of Cincinnati’s final 12 points. Justin Jackson added 15 points as Cincinnati won its 17th straight home game, 15 of them this season.
South Florida (11-11, 2-7) suffered another close loss to the Bearcats, who broke open a tie game for a 61-54 win on Jan. 18.
