NCAA teams have extra time in tournament

Cincinnati power forward Yancy Gates didn't even notice that he had a lot more time to catch his breath during his first NCAA tournament appearance. Halftime? Five minutes longer than normal. Timeouts? Longer, too. ''They're longer?'' Gates said. ''I didn't even know.'' Sure are. And for smaller schools that don't get to play on...

Gates focusing on defense since return

Yancy Gates returned from his six-game suspension with renewed purpose. He rejoined a Bearcats team that is playing some of its best basketball to date, largely due to a guard-oriented approach necessitated by the suspensions of Gates, Cheikh Mbodj, and Octavius Ellis in the wake of the brawl with Xavier. So now the pressure is off Gates to score. He's become more focused on...

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...

Alabama St has no answer for Gates, No. 21 Cincy

With no starters over 6-foot-6 and no player over 6-7, Alabama State coach Lewis Jackson figured his Hornets would have a problem controlling Yancy Gates. He was right. The 6-foot-9 Cincinnati senior missed four of seven free throws but still scored 15 points and had 11 rebounds in his 14th career double-double and the No. 21 Bearcats opened their regular season with a 65-40 win...
