CINCINNATI (AP) Sean Kilpatrick scored 21 points and Titus Rubles added 14 as the Cincinnati Bearcats pulled away from North Carolina State in the final minutes for a 68-57 win on Tuesday.
Justin Jackson finished with his first career double-double - 10 points and 10 rebounds - as Cincinnati improved to 2-0 before a crowd of 7,028.
T.J. Warren and Ralston Turner each scored 13 points and Desmond Lee added 10 for N.C. State (1-1).
The win was just the second for the Bearcats in eight games against the Wolfpack.
The teams combined for 12 ties and eight lead changes.
Kilpatrick scored five unanswered points on two free throws and a 3-pointer to give Cincinnati a 51-48 lead with 9:45 left in the game.
Cincinnati went on to lead by 14 before settling for the 11-point win. The Bearcats made 23 free throws, while N.C. State only attempted 21, making 12. Both teams shot under 40 percent for the game.
