Massive Brawl Ends Xavier-Cincinnati Game Early (Video)

This isn’t going to help the reputation of Cincinnati Bearcats players; the troubled Yancy Gates specifically. Today’s incident isn’t indicative of how players on the 8th ranked team in college basketball (Xavier Musketeers) should act, and I doubt Tu Holloway‘s NBA Draft stock will be helped by this. Cincinnati vs. Xavier is always a bitter rivalry; but today it didn’t...

Xavier and UC shame themselves...forever

CINCINNATI Xavier-Cincinnati is a Forever Game, not just this year but every year, the kind of rivalry game that makes legends and stories remembered for years to come. Yancy Gates and Tu Holloway have been in enough of these games, known locally as the Crosstown Shootout, that they should have known that long before the events of Saturday afternoons brawl.
