CINCINNATI (AP) Sean Kilpatrick scored a career-high 29 points, hitting eight shots from behind the arc, and No. 24 Cincinnati dominated from the outset Sunday of a 93-39 victory over North Carolina A&T.

The Bearcats (3-0) opened with a 14-point run that featured four 3s by Kilpatrick, who got wide-open shots all around the arc. Cincinnati's lead never slipped below double-digits.

Kilpatrick had 21 points in the opening half - six under his previous high - and matched his career best with six 3-pointers before the intermission. He made more shots from beyond the arc than the Aggies (1-3) did overall in the half.

The junior guard also had seven rebounds and five assists in 26 minutes.

North Carolina A&T shot only 15 percent from the field (10 of 66) with 20 turnovers. Lamont Middleton led the Aggies with 11 points.
