NCAA: Xavier Vs. Cincinnati Brawl


It seems like sports brawls have been routine these days. This one is no different With Xavier leading 76-53 with less than 10 seconds remaining in the game.  Xavier’s Tu Holloway & Cincinnati guard Ge’Lawn Guyn got face to face going back and forth when Xavier freshman Dezmine Wells came to the side of his teammate and shoved Guyn. At that point both benches emptied and things got way out of hand leading to Yancy Gates sucker punching Xavier’s Kenny Frease who also got kicked while kneeling on the ground. This resulted in a lot of suspensions & bans as well. The worst part of this was what Xavier Star Tu Holloway said after the game via twitter “We’re grown men over here. We’ve got a whole lot of gangsters over here. Not thugs, but tough guys on the court. We went out there and zipped them up at the end of the game. That’s our motto: Zip ’em up. And that’s what we just did to them.” Bodybags!
