Suspended Cincinnati forward Yancy Gates cried on Monday as he apologized for his role in an on-court brawl with No. 8 Xavier, saddened that he's being called ''a thug, a gangster'' for punching players. The Bearcats' four suspended players were told to attend a news conference and apologize for their actions during the closing seconds of a 76-53 loss to the Musketeers on Saturday at Xavier. The game was called with 9.4 seconds left when the brawl broke out. Xavier has suspended four of its players, including senior point guard Tu Holloway for one game. Gates and two other Bearcats got six-game suspensions. Gates said he feared he would be thrown off the team after he punched Xavier players, including center Kenny Frease.
