Former White Plains High School star Sean Kilpatrick announced today that he will return to Cincinnati for his senior season. Kilpatrick averaged 17.0 points per game as a junior. He ranked fifth in the Big East in scoring and earned second-team all-conference honors for the second straight year.
According to a story on the university’s website, Kilpatrick is 16th on Cincinnati’s all-time scoring list with 1,444 points. He scored 577 points as junior; that was the most by any player under current coach Mick Cronin. Kilpatrick is also one of only 11 players in program history to eclipse 1,400 in just three seasons.
The 6-foot-4 shooting guard will turn 24 during his senior season. He’s currently ranked 35th among juniors by the website DraftExpress. He scored a career-high 36 against Marquette in January.
