#13 Cincinnati, #13 Cincinnati Outlasts South Florida, 2013-14: The Heath Mentality, 2014, AAC, American Athletic Conference, Anthony Collins, Bearcats, by Matthew Manuri, CBS Sports Network, Cincinnati, Justin Jackson, Sean Kilpatrick, Shemiye McLendon, South Florida, South Florida Men's Basketball
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.
