The yearly chili debate tournament known as the Crosstown Rivalry (Cincinnati representing the classic Skyline brand while Xavier speaks on behalf of Gold Star) was brought to a premature end with this brawl in the final seconds—possibly due to a third party agitator arguing on behalf of the traditional Price Hill brand of chili.

X's Kenny Frease took the brunt of the damage, getting kicked but also punched square in the face by Bearcat Yancy Gates, which will likely earn Mr. Gates an extended holiday vacation. Oh, and Xavier won 76-53. [ESPN2]
