CINCINNATI (AP)

Sean Kilpatrick scored a season-high 23 points, and Justin Jackson had a career-high 19 on Wednesday night, helping Cincinnati stay unbeaten with an 81-62 victory over Campbell.

The Bearcats (4-0) never trailed, pulling ahead by as many as 23 points while shooting 63 percent from the field.

Kilpatrick steadied the offense, going 9 of 12 from the field. He also had the most impressive basket, banking the ball off the backboard as he fell in the second half.

Jackson dominated inside, getting put-backs and bank shots. He had nine rebounds and five of Cincinnati's eight blocks, coming up just short of his second career double-double.

The Fighting Camels (2-3) lost their third in a row. Andrew Ryan scored 17 points and Darius Leonard added 16. Campbell went 11 of 22 from behind the arc and shot 43 percent from the field overall against a defense that had limited its first three opponents to 33 percent.

The game was part of the Global Sports Shootout, a round-robin exempt tournament played on campus sites.

The Fighting Camels scored only nine points in the second half of a 62-43 loss to North Carolina Central on Monday night, with their new spread offense breaking down. They were much better at the outset Wednesday, matching that second-half total in the first four minutes. Leonard's 3-pointer from the corner tied it 9-all.

Cincinnati started forcing turnovers with its half-court traps and taking advantage of its size on the front line. Kilpatrick hit a driving bank sot and a 3-pointer during an 11-0 spurt.

Jackson set the tone defensively, blocking one of D.J. Mason's shots so hard it shot off the backboard. The 6-foot-8 forward had a pair of putbacks as the Bearcats pushed the lead to 17 points.

Jackson had 10 points, six rebounds and three of Cincinnati's six blocked shots in the first half, which ended with the Bearcats up 42-29. Kilpatrick had a game-high 12 points in the half, making four of his five shots. His only miss - a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Kilpatrick's bank shot stretched the lead to 57-39. Ryan kept the Fighting Camels close with a pull-up jumper and a 3-pointer. Ryan hit another 3 that cut it to 59-47 midway through the second half.

Jackson took it inside and got a three-point play and a reverse layup during a nine-point run that gave Cincinnati a 68-47 lead.

Jackson also dived over the courtside media table to make a save in the closing minutes, landing on the floor before getting up and running back onto the court to an ovation from the 6,011 fans. He left the game and had his left thumb examined.
