Xavier defeated Cincinnati, 76-53 but that wasn't the story of the night. The game ended with 9.4 seconds to go when a fight broke out. Apparently, the two sides had been taking verbal jabs at each other all week and during this game and it finally came to a head here. Xavier's Kenny Frease got the worst of it, getting punched by Yancy Gates and then kicked when he was on the ground. There will be some major suspensions following this melee.
