Criminal charges are possible in the aftermath of the Xavier-Cincinnati brawl, after which Sean Miller supported his former team.

"If Cincinnati tries to do what they did (Saturday) they're going to get a fight," Miller said after UA beat Clemson on Saturday. "So I'm proud of those guys."

Miller went on to say he hopes Xavier wins the rest of their games -- except that he wouldn't comment when it faces Dayton and Miller's brother, Archie.

"They have a chance to win it all," Miller said. "It's just such a great story. I'm really proud of those guys and I watch them any time that I can. No one's going to bully those guys."
