Posted July 03, 2018

Punches and chairs were thrown as players and spectators alike got involved in a brawl that spilled off the court.

"I have to see what FIBA does".

Nine Philippines players and four Australians were given their marching orders.

"Hours later and my blood is still boiling". Both players were ejected along with 11 other players.

"Luc Longley might have just saved Chris Goulding's life", he tweeted. The assistant coach grabs a chair and pummels it down on his head while multiple cowards stomp on him.

And it was based on well-controlled clinical trials evaluating the use of this compound in the treatment of a specific condition. Epidiolex is also the first prescription created to treat children with Dravet syndrome, according to the FDA's announcement.

"This is very hard to watch".

Moore said Basketball Australia later apologised to the Philippines Basketball Association.

The fracas started when Australian guard Chris Goulding received an elbow to the face and was then barged to the ground by Roger Pogoy on the Filipino's drive, provoking his teammate Daniel Kickert to retaliate with a stiff elbow that sent Pogoy to the floor.

One NBA player, Milwaukee Bucks center Thon Maker, who was playing for Australia was in the middle of the brawl, kicking opponents. "One may criticize how the game ended, but the true test of a fan is to stick with his team win or lose, through thick and thin", Angara said in a statement on Tuesday, July 3.

The chief executive of Basketball Australia Anthony Moore apologised for the violence. "We didn't want [that to happen]". "We don't play the game in that spirit".

Social media users, whether basketball fans, media or former players, had a wide range of reactions to the madness.

The violent scenes, involving players, local officials and even spectators, broke out during a World Cup qualification match between the countries in Manila.

Philippines coach Chot Reyes laid the blame squarely with the Australians, claiming they had created an atmosphere that prompted his players to react as strongly as they did, due to underhand treatment of his players earlier in the night. "We will wait for the referee's decision, but please I would like us to respect the game". Kickert is a model professional with an excellent disciplinary record, hopefully that is taken into account.

Longley, the first Australian to play in the National Basketball Association, raced into the Filipino pack and stood over Goulding, protecting him from the swarm of attackers.

Both teams are in position to advance to the next round.
