FIBA to discipline brawling Australia, Philippines players

FIBA Amer added to Gilas for Australia rematch

Ultimately the referees ejected nine Philippine players, including Pogoy and Blatche, and four Australians - Maker, Goulding, Sobey and Kickert.

Video showed a chair being thrown into the back of an Australian player by a fan.

Australia held a comfortable 79-48 lead when a pair of rough fouls, one from Philippines player Roger Pogoy on Chris Goulding followed by a retaliation from teammate Daniel Kickert, saw the game erupt into madness.

"The brawl is absolutely unacceptable but the reality is Kickert was hitting our players during the warm-ups", Reyes said. "We are hosting this game, and this is basketball". A couple Philippine players took selfies of the carnage during the delay, Brisbane's Courier-Mail reported.

A better look at the throwdown comes courtesy of Ryan Northover, who recorded footage from the Fox Sports Australia broadcast of the game.

Now, with the proceedings about to start, FIBA said that the decisions will be made in the next days.

It remains to be seen what action the PBA will take in the aftermath of the fracas. We are very happy with the new court decals.

In a freaky twist, the Philippines team later posed for a group selfie.

"I thought it was pretty odd, to be in a position where you've been in a major altercation and then to be seemingly enjoying the moment. I don't know why it was allowed to continue", he said.

A statement from the chief executive of Basketball Australia noted that they "deeply regret" the "incident". While we accept our role in the incident, what we don't accept is when fans and officials get involved.

But the incident may just overshadow performances from both teams.

The victory means that Australia finishes on top of Asian Zone Group B with five wins from six games, though both teams had already progressed to the second stage of qualification.

Australian basketball players feared for their safety after a World Cup qualifier in the Philippines descended into an extraordinary mass brawl, the sport's domestic governing body has said.
