Cincinnati-Xavier Brawl

If you weren't watching this weekend Cincinnati and Xavier had a melee on Saturday near the end of their game, which Xavier won. Cincinnati players got the exchange started earlier in the week with a few incendiary comments to the media and posted on the internet. The comments spoke down of the Xavier players, who responded by thoroughly outplaying Cincinnati on the court. Feeling vindicated and sensing a victory, the Xavier players then began to talk back on the court and the brawl quickly ensued. When the dust settled the Xavier player in the middle of this still picture was leaking from the face and players from both teams were issued suspensions ranging from 1 to 6 games.

If you haven't seen the footage yet a "Cincinnati-Xavier" internet search will yield more video of the brawl than you can stand.
