In the Bearcats' most recent game against Middle Tennessee State, Kilpatrick's 23 points moved him to eighth on the Cincinnati all-time scoring list, passing Louis Banks who recorded 1,644 points from 1988-91. But that is just one of the many accomplishments the redshirt senior guard from Yonkers, New York has achieved since being a Bearcat.

Kilpatrick was one of 12 players in the nation named to the USA Basketball World University Games Team that competed July 7-16 in Kazan, Russia. Kilpatrick averaged 7.5 points and 2.0 rebounds in eight contests helping the USA to a ninth place finish at the World University Games. He scored a game-high 18 points with four three-pointers, four rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes against United Arab Emirates on July 7.

He has also been recognized as with numerous honors such as a Second Team All-BIG EAST selection for the 2012 and the 2013 season, 2012-13 John R. Wooden Midseason Top 25 selection, 2012-13 Naismith Award Top 30 selection, owns single-season scoring record during the Mick Cronin era (577 points in 2012-13), and he is one of 11 players in UC history to reach 1,400 career points in his third season.

In a post-game interview after the Bearcats' most recent victory against the Blue Raiders of Middle Tennessee State, when asked whether moving to eighth on UC's all-time scoring list mattered to him.

"No, I really don't pay attention to those types of stats. All I want to do is go out there on the court and give my 100 percent to help my teammates keep winning games. Winning is the most important statistic to me."
