CINCINNATI (AP) - Justin Jackson and Titus Rubles led Cincinnati's domination, and the Bearcats' pressure defense forced 20 turnovers on Friday afternoon, setting up a 95-67 victory over Kennesaw State.

Sean Kilpatrick had 20 points for Cincinnati (6-0), which pushed the lead to 20 in the first half by pressing the Owls into repeated turnovers. The Bearcats had a season high in points.

Jackson had 11 points, seven rebounds and four blocked shots. Rubles matched his career high with 14 points and had five rebounds as the forward tandem worked inside for close-up shots.

Orland Coleman scored 12 points for Kennesaw State (3-7). Coleman also got a technical foul for yelling something at a Cincinnati player after making a 3-pointer in the second half.

The Owls started a tough seven-game trip that will conclude their nonconference schedule. In addition to Cincinnati, they'll play at Georgia Tech and at Indiana before going home again.
