Cincy Hands No. 11 GTown Second Straight Loss

by David Cassilo / @dcassilo

Cincinnati scored its biggest win of the season on Monday night as it knocked off No. 11 Georgetown, 68-64, in Washington, D.C. The Bearcats have now won eight of nine games since their brawl against Xavier.

The game was tied at 62 with 1:07 remaining, and there wasn’t another field goal for the rest of the game, but the Bearcats outscored Georgetown 6-to-2 from the free throw line to seal the victory. The Hoyas fell for the second straight game after they lost to West Virginia on Saturday.

Bearcats leading-scorer Sean Kilpatrick, was the hero against the Hoyas. The sophomore guard poured in a career-high 27 points to spark the upset for Cincinnati.

Although the Bearcats have been on a hot streak, their most recent game was a shocking home loss to St. John’s on Saturday. The defeat was still fresh in their mind against the Hoyas.

From Cincinnati.com:

“We came in yesterday and coach was telling he’s never been embarrassed like that and we felt the same way,” Kilpatrick said of the St. John’s game.

Ranked in the top-25 to start the season, Cincinnati is on their way back to earning national recognition. Its next test will be a home game on Saturday against Villanova.

    As a G’town fan, until JTIII steps down off of his high horse and coaches his team more than one way offensively, they will NEVER reach their full potential… ever.
