Wild Brawl Mars Basketball Game Between Georgetown and Chinese Team [VIDEO]
A goodwill exhibition basketball game between Georgetown University and the Chinese team Bayi Rockets, which took place in Beijing Thursday, was suspended in the fourth quarter after an all-out brawl erupted.
The melee began after a hard foul, with the score tied 64-64. The benches cleared, punches and kicks flew, and players on both teams were seen wielding chairs.
“We sincerely regret that this situation occurred,” said Georgetown coach John Thompson III, who pulled his team off the court and out of the arena. Georgetown is scheduled to play Bayi again on Sunday, but it’s unclear if the university will continue it’s 10-day tour of China. Check out the video of international incident below.
