Cincinnati Xavier Fight
December 11, 2011 by staff
With both sides already heated from an exchange Xavier guard Mark Lyons and members of Cincinnati’s team, the 76-53 rout by the Musketeers over the Bearcats turned ugly in the final seconds of the game. That’s when two Xavier players — Dezmine Wells and Atlantic 10 preseason player of the year, Tu Holloway — shoved Cincinnati’s Ge’Lawn Guyn to the floor.
That ignited a full-out brawl.
In the ensuing melee, several players on both sides were seen swinging punches as the benches cleared. Television replays showed Cincinnati center Yancy Gates punch Xavier’s Kenny Frease in the face and take a swing at another player who had come off of the Musketeers’ bench.
After being struck, Frease staggered to the floor only to come up bleeding heavily from the left side of his face.
“That’s what you’re going to see from Xavier and Cincinnati,” Holloway said after the game. “We got disrespected a little bit before the game, guys calling us out. We’re a tougher team. We’re grown men over here. We’ve got a whole bunch of gangsters in the locker room—not thugs, but tough guys on the court. And we went out there and zipped them up at the end of the game.”
