Xavier-Cincinnati Game Ends in Bench-Clearing Brawl Featuring Cheap Shot and Bloodshed (Video)


No. 8 Xavier roughed up Cincinnati on the scoreboard Saturday. But it was the Bearcats that would throw the last punch.

With 9.4 seconds remaining in the game, Xavier's Tu Holloway and Cincinnati's Ge'Lawn Guyn got in each other's face. Holloway's teammate, Dezmine Wells, took exception to Guyn and shoved him to the hardwood. Both benches then cleared and punches were thrown.

Cincinnati head coach Mick Cronin will meet with the school's president and athletic director to see what the repercussions of the altercation will be. The discussions will most likely be focused on Cincy forward Yancy Gates, who delivered a cheap shot to Musketeers center Kenny Frease, leaving him bloody.

Check out the video below to see the brawl.
