Xavier-Cincinnati Basket Brawl Caught on Tape
Saturday's brawl between state rivals Xavier University and the University of Cincinnati effectively ended the contest with 9.4 seconds on the clock. The fight began when Xavier’s Tu Holloway and Cincinnati’s Ge’Lawn Guyn stood chest-to-chest shouting at each other. Xavier’s Dezmine Wells then shoved Guyn leading to both benches emptying and the fighting ensued. “I felt disrespected for them guys to come at me and talk like that, so I let the whole staff over there and let their players know that none of them is like me,” Holloway told reporters. “That’s when it started.” What stood out from this brawl was Cincinnati’s Yancy Gates getting clocked by Xavier’s Kenny Frease, knocking the 7-foot, 275-pound center to the floor and leaving his face bloodied. While he was down, he was kicked by Cincinnati’s Cheikh Mbodj. Check out the video above to see the melee.
