Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Sean Kilpatrick tallied 21 points to lead the Cincinnati Bearcats to a 74-59 win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the final non-conference tuneup for both teams at Fifth Third Arena.

Kilpatrick shot just 2-of-13 from the field but made up for it by connecting on 17-of-18 free throws. Justin Jackson recorded a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds to go along with four blocks, while Kevin Johnson scored 11 off the bench for the Bearcats (11-2).

Terran Petteway had a game-high 22 points and Ray Gallegos added 18 for the Cornhuskers (8-4), who entered the day with wins in five of their previous six outings but were unable to keep up the scoring pace in this one.
