Player of the Week: Sean Kilpatrick, Cincinnati

The Bearcats picked up arguably their biggest win of the season on Saturday, as they held on to beat No. 25 Marquette 71-69 in overtime after the Golden Eagles had fallen behind by a score of 29-13 at halftime. Making the win all the more impressive is that Cashmere Wright say the game out with a sprained knee and Davante Gardner slowly but surely fouled out the entire Cincinnati front line.

Kilpatrick was the reason the Bearcats were able to hold on. He finished with a career-high 36 points, shooting 11-23 from the field. The rest of the Cincinnati went 9-35 from the floor. Kilpatrick aslo scored seven of Cincinnati’s nine points in overtime, including the game-winning bucket on a driving layup with six seconds left on the clock. All this came after he went for 18 points in a win at DePaul.

The All-They-Were-Good-Too Team:

  • G: Ian Clark, Belmont: In two games last week, Clark averaged 22.0 point, 6.5 boards, 3.5 assists and 3.5 steals while shooting 14-26 from the floor and 8-15 from three. More importantly, he led Belmont to wins over both Eastern Kentucky and Tennessee State, handing both programs their first loss in OVC play while moving the Bruins into sole possession of first. Making things even more impressive? Over his last five games, Clark is averaging 25.0 points while shooting 68.8% from the floor and 61.1% from three.
  • G: Corey Hawkins, UC-Davis: Hawkins had himself a night on Saturday. He led the Aggies to a win at Hawaii on Saturday night with a 40 point performance. More impressive? Not only was Hawkins 8-9 from the three, but he was 10-14 from the floor and 12-12 from the line. The 6-foot-3 guard also chipped in with 12 boards on the night.
  • G: Michael Carter-Williams and Brandon Triche, Syracuse: It’s impossible to differentiate the two, but they deserve recognition after leading Syracuse to a win over Louisville. As MCW spent the first 24 minutes playing like he was shaving points, Triche went off, scoring 18 of his 23 points in the first half on 7-7 shooting. MCW turned it up down the stretch, however, accounting for the Orange’s last 13 points and making the game-winning and game-saving plays in the final minute.
  • F: Carl Hall, Wichita State: In just his second game back after breaking his thumb in practice and missing a month of game-time, Hall came off the bench to finish with 17 points and 13 boards, six offensive, as the Shockers knocked off No. 12 Creighton 67-64 on Saturday afternoon.
  • C: Mike Muscala, Bucknell: In wins over Lafayette and Colgate this week, Muscala finished averaged 26.0 points, 12.5 boards and 3.5 blocks. He’s too much center for the Patriot League to handle.
  • Bench: Dorian Green (Colorado State), Rodney McGruder (Kansas State), Darius Theus (VCU)
