Schools: Cincinnati and Xavier
Accomplishments: Elite 8 birth for Xavier. Sweet 16 for Cincinnati.
Trouble: In a regular season meeting in December of 2011, Xavier and Cincinnati squared off in one of the most infamous brawls in college basketball history.
Most notably, Yancy Gates of Cincinnati threw a basketball at an opponent and delivered a Mike Tyson-esque blow to a Xavier player.
Senior guard Tu Holloway of Xavier said after the game, "That's what you're gonna see from Xavier and Cincinnati...we've got a whole bunch of gangsters in our locker room." Holloway didn't mean gangsters in a literal sense, but there's no doubt that both teams acted like children on the court.
Fights happen in basketball. But what makes this one so embarrassing for the two teams is how they handled it. They pointed fingers, initially refused to apologize and were unable to play a heated rivalry game without resorting to violence.
Where are they now: Gates, who was one of the few to issue a sincere apology after the incident, plays professionally in Lithuania. Several have graduated and others are still in college.
