I imagine you’ve seen this video from the on-court brawl between Georgetown and Chinese Bayi Rockets in an international exhibition yesterday. If you haven’t:
Yikes. This doesn’t look good for anybody. The good news is it doesn’t appear anyone was seriously hurt and the teams have since made nice.
I imagine that for the Hoyas, the brawl had as much to do with unfamiliar officiating as anything. In Big East play, holding a guy down and punching him in the face almost never gets called, and refs usually let chair-throwing slide unless it’s in the first few minutes of the game.
I kid. A scary scene, obviously.
