UC's Kilpatrick on short list for Naismith Award

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - University of Cincinnati junior guard Sean Kilpatrick has been named one of 30 candidates for the 2013 Naismith College Player of the Year award presented by AT&T, the Atlanta Tipoff Club announced today.

Kilpatrick ranks among the BIG EAST Conference leaders in scoring (fourth at 17.6 points per game), three-pointers per game (second at 2.54) and rebounding (19th at 5.4). The Yonkers, N.Y. native has scored 30 or more points twice this season; 20 or more points in eight games and has reached double figures in scoring in all but two games.

Kilpatrick has been honored by the BIG EAST six times this season with two player of the week awards and four weekly honor roll selections.

The top 30 candidates of the Naismith College Player of the Year award were selected by the Atlanta Tipoff Club's Board of Selectors, which based its criteria on player performances to this point in the 2013 men's college basketball season. In late March, the Naismith Trophy voting academy will narrow down the list to four finalists. The Naismith Men's College Player of the Year presented by AT&T will be awarded on April 7, 2013 in Atlanta.

For the ninth consecutive year, fans will have the opportunity to text their votes for the player of their choice and help determine the 2013 Naismith Trophy winner. Voting will open to fans on Monday, March 25. Naismith Trophy presenting sponsor AT&T is making the voting open to other wireless carriers, enabling even more fans to participate.
