I hope none of you missed out on hoops this weekend. Saturday was unquestionably the most entertaining day of college basketball we've had all season.

The Morning Dump will try to catch you up to speed on the most exciting day of hoops thus far.

- Pat Forde rips into Xavier and Cincinnati for the way they handled the brawl aftermath. Eamonn Brennan isn't impressed with the suspensions either. Same goes for Jeff Goodman

- Mic Cronin delivered one helluva post-game press conference (Even if he did negate it by levying weak suspensions)

- Even Bob Huggins daughter reacted to the brawl. Not sure why this is relevant at all. But I did grab a twitpic of her at the WVU/KSU game last week
