Sean Kilpatrick (@SeanKilpatrick_) April 10, 2013He wants to be the first person in his family to get his college degree, and he has basketball goals, too. He'll enter his final season as Cincinnati's 16th all-time leading scorer and should have the green light to climb the charts. He averaged 17 points per game last season.
Wednesday night the Bearcats held their season-ending banquet, and Cronin announced Kilpatrick -- a two-time pick as second-team All-Big East -- will be a team captain next season.
"This has always been the place for Sean," Cronin said. "He is a player that is a complete success story. As driven as SK is that was his goal this year (to leave after his junior season). But he is mature enough to understand the benefits of improving and getting his degree."
