After two straight losses, the last thing Cincinnati' s seniors wanted to do was squander a chance at delivering the program its first conference title in 10 years. After Thursday night's 97-84 win against Memphis, the 15th-ranked Bearcats are in prime position to do just that. On Senior Night at Fifth Third Arena, the three senior starters had their best effort of the season, scoring 71 points. Sean Kilpatrick had a season high 34, Titus Rubles added a career high 24 and Justin Jackson had 13 points and nine rebounds. With a win at Rutgers on Saturday, the Bearcats (25-5, 14-3 American) are assured of at least a co-championship. If UConn can beat Louisville, UC would have it outright along with the top seed in next week's conference tournament. "It would mean a lot.

They played an NIT game against...
