There was a melee between the Georgetown basketball team and a Chinese army team. Part is shown in the above video. Andrew Jacobs reports on it in the NY Times (here):
….. Senior leaders are clearly displeased that players from its most popular men’s basketball team got into an ugly, full-court brawl Thursday night with the Georgetown University Hoyas.
It does not help that the melee took place on the second day of Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s first official visit to China.
The violence, captured by amateur video cameras and broadcast around the world, occurred during the final minutes of a “good will” match between the Hoyas and the Bayi Rockets, a team whose members are drawn from the People’s Liberation Army.
In the video, a Rockets player can be seen ramming the guard Aaron Bowen through a partition and pounding on him with fists as he sat on his chest. Before the Georgetown coach pulled his men off the floor and called the game quits, Chinese players and spectators threw punches, folding chairs and full bottles of water. With that, the game officially ended in a tie, 64-64…..
Another take, with more melees by the Chinese team, here.
