Hoyas stunned at home by Bearcats

WASHINGTON — Sean Kilpatrick scored a career-high 27 and Cincinnati made 6 of 6 free throws in the final 70 seconds Monday night to upset No. 11 Georgetown 68-64.

Kilpatrick and Dion Dixon each had four of Cincinnati's 13 steals as the Bearcats forced Georgetown into 17 turnovers, matching the Hoyas' season high. Cincinnati has won eight of nine.

Hollis Thompson and Jason Clark scored 14 each and were a combined 11-of-13 from the field for the Hoyas (13-3, 3-2), whose 59 percent shooting was undone by their carelessness.

Georgetown has lost two straight after an 11-game winning streak. It lost for the first time in 10 home games this season.

NO. 17 UCONN 64, W. VA. 57: Jeremy Lamb had 25 points as the host Huskies (13-3, 3-2 Big East) overcame a 10-point second-half deficit to snap a two-game losing streak.

COACH SUSPENDED: Morgan State coach Todd Bozeman was suspended indefinitely without pay after being accused of punching senior guard Larry Bastfield in Saturday night's victory at South Carolina State. Bozeman denied hitting the player.

AP POLL: Seton Hall moved in at No. 24, its first appearance since January 2001. Creighton re-entered at No. 23. Wisconsin fell out from 18th and Harvard from 22nd. Syracuse was No. 1 for a fifth straight week.

ARKANSAS: The son of coach Mike Anderson was arrested for a second time on suspicion of drunken driving. Michael Anderson, 26, is a video coordinator for the Razorbacks.

TENNESSEE: The NCAA and SEC cleared forward Jarnell Stokes, one of the team's top recruits, to play. A high school transfer as a senior prevented him from playing in the fall.


NO. 13 MIAMI 77, GA. TECH 65: Shenise Johnson had 24 points for the visiting Hurricanes (13-3, 2-1 ACC), who have won four of five.

AP POLL: No. 24 South Carolina entered for the first time in nine years, and Gonzaga joined at No. 23. Penn State and Texas fell out. Baylor remained the unanimous No. 1.

    Volleyball Preps

    CLEARWATER — Katy Rice knows what a good volleyball team looks like, and the Clearwater coach believes she has a pretty good one this year. Rice was a left-side hitter on the only two teams to win a volleyball state championship at Clearwater, in 1997 and 2000.
