Sean Kilpatrick was the unquestioned go-to man for Cincinnati. He led the Bearcats with 16 points and was the only Cincinnati player in double figures in what was a poor shooting night overall for the nation's 17th-best team. The Bearcats shot just 30.8 percent overall and were 4-25 from three. Cashmere Wright in particular had a rough game, going 1-11 from beyond the arc and scoring just five points.

Pittsburgh didn't shoot the lights out either, but was rather just good enough to win. The Panthers shot 45.5 percent, while Steven Adams (13 points) and Talib Zanna (11 points) joined Woodall in double figures.

The Bearcats and Panthers have now split the season series, with Cincinnati winning in Pittsburgh on Dec. 31.
