Nothing Says Diplomacy like a good Bench Clearing Brawl

August 19, 2011

An exhibition basketball game between the Georgetown Hoyas and a Chinese men’s team ended abruptly when an all out brawl consumed the facility.

I went to a fight and a basketball game broke out.

Both benches cleared and it was upper-cuts, jabs and folding chairs for the ensuing melee. The fight broke out at the 9.5 minute mark remaining in the 2nd quarter. The rest of Georgetown’s game against the Bayi Rockets was canceled.

The Hoyas are scheduled to play the Rockets again on Sunday night in Shanghai.  Ringside seats are still available.

    It looks like a Hoya threw the first punch, but the Chinese team obviously doesn’t know that basketball is not a contact sport so I’m not sure I blame him.
