Sean Kilpatrick Makes USA Basketball World University Games Roster

Frank Victores-US PRESSWIRE

Kilpatrick becomes the fourth Bearcat to do so after Pete Mikel and Kenyon Martin (1999) and Eric Hicks (2005)

The release from UC, and my favorite quote from Sean Kilpatrick's Q&A with gobearcats.com

"Wow, that’s such a shock hearing you say that. I just got chills. I’ve been talking a lot with Eric Hicks on how I can get to the point where I make the team. He’s helped me a lot. Coach (Mick Cronin) has talked to me a lot during this process too, telling me to focus on the little things that will help me make the team. It’s a great honor."

Zagsblog also has a fairly lengthy piece on Kila up as well. This is obviously a big opportunity for SK heading into his final season at Cincinnati. Mikel and Martin used the experience to catapult themselves into one of the all time great single seasons for a team. Time will tell on Kila's ability to do the same thing. The tournament for the US will tip off at 10:30 Cincinnati time on the 7th of July. I have no idea who is televising this competition domestically.
