Cincinnati Vs. Wright St. Final Score: Bearcats Pound Raiders 78-58

The Cincinnati Bearcats responded well in their first game after a loss embroiled in controversy against the Xavier Musketeers, as Cincinnati breezed by the Wright State Raiders 78-58 on Wednesday night at the Ervin J. Nutter Center in Dayton. 

Sean Kilpatrick delivered a rousing performance, splashing in 6-12 three-pointers on his way to 20 points, and all five starters scored in double figures for the Bearcats, who improved to 6-3 on the season with the win.

Cincinnati made 14-32 three-pointers overall and took a 43-22 into the halfcourt locker rooms, so even as the Raiders outscored them 36-35 in the second half, the game was never in doubt.

The game came just four days after Bearcats forward Yancy Gates was in the middle of a brawl in which he punched Xavier center Kenny Frease in the face. Four Bearcats were suspended for this game overall, and Gates was suspended for six games, but no criminal charges were filed as a result of the melee.

The Bearcats start a four-game homestand on Dec. 17 when they host the Radford Highlanders.
