I just got off the phone with Georgetown spokesman Mex Carey - who was still awake at 4 a.m. local time. 

By now, you have, in all likelihood, heard about the Hoyas bench-clearing brawl in Beijing, China, on Thursday. You may have even seen the video of the fracas with the Bayi Rockets, a Chinese professional team. 

"It was a physical game," Carey said. "There's no question about it." 

And apparently, the Hoyas weren't getting a kind whistle as the Bayi Rockets went to the charity stripe 57 times to Georgetown's 15 free throws. The game was tied at 64 when the game was halted midway through the fourth quarter following the incidents.

"It wasn't that JT III (John Thompson III) pulled them off the floor," Carey said. "At that point, the game was done." 

Carey said that the players on both sides weren't injured following the altercation, but one Georgetown fan and alum was knocked unconscious after being hit with a water bottle in the throat area. 

Georgetown is slated to leave in the morning for Shanghai. The Hoyas have two more games left on their current trip - the next one on Monday - before they will head back home on Wednesday. 

The sad part, Carey said, is that this incident will certainly mar what had been a terrific trip for the Hoyas. 

"It's been a great experience," Carey said. ``It's a beautiful city."

Carey said the scariest part was actually when the players were separated and the fans in the arena were throwing objects at the team when they were walking off the court.

Chimmeyfish, I think you too is an idiot. What makes you think that the Chinese have the same laws as us? If they can punch, kick and throw chairs in their parliment and nothing happen, what makes you think the Chinese team is going to get punish for this incident? The only thing that's going to happen is the Chinese government is going to apologize and that would be it. As for the Chinese team and its fans, they will be bragging about this incident for the rest of their lives as how they kick the Hoyas's ass.

Not only did the Georgetown Hoyas embarrassed themselves and the USA with their sad play and action but they should have never gone to Beijing, China in the first place because they are not good at all to be there. You Hoyas are a disgrace and that's way you guys stink for almost a decade now.

I ran Bayi through Google translator.  It's chinese for "Detroit".


Spoken from the bitter lips of none other than, you guessed it, an Indiana Pacers fan.  It had nothing to do with that class act Ron Artest.

Get to know your enemy. The game video explains who the mainland Chinese are better than I can. They have been beaten down by their government for centuries and now because we all have flat sceen TV's they have some cash and want to scrap. I watched a Chinese high school team (all in their mid 20's by the way) come here to Hawaii and go 0-4 in the Iolani Classic and wanted to fight after every foul call.
They have no moral compass. It's the wild wild west to the Chinese. We will have to throw down will these punks at some point. Get ready.
