  • FIBA Gilas Group B set up for explosive finish

Instead, the discussion will center around a truly remarkable and ugly brawl that resulted in a total of 13 players being ejected - four Australians and nine Filipinos.

Fiba will run a detailed video review of the game, security and the actions of both teams, both coaches and the referees.

With four minutes remaining in the third quarter and Australia leading by 31 points, Daniel Kickert offered a flying elbow that appeared to start the ruckus.

DeMarcus Cousins Agrees To Sign One-Year, $5.3M With Warriors
Now that the Golden State Warriors acquired DeMarcus Cousins , the Lakers have more reason to add Leonard to their team. Along with the Los Angeles Lakers signing LeBron James yesterday, it has been a rough couple days for Dwight Howard.

Australia met the Philippines for a matchup in Group B of the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers, but the game didn't go as planned.

In a statement following the brawl, Basketball Australia chief executive Anthony Moore condemned the incident and said that the Boomers would accept the consequences. "We don't play the game in that spirit", Moore said. While we accept our role in the incident, what we don't accept is when fans and officials get involved. No one from the Australian bench came onto the floor.

After the brawl, members of the Philippines men's basketball team were seen taking selfies.

He also urged North Korea to "continue (its) consultations with China" as it negotiates with the United States, the report said. As of now, there is little proof that North Korea intends to go down that road, longtime North Korea observers say.

PBA, who has 11 of 12 players in its activated roster Monday night, will be conducting a closed-door meeting this Thursday to discuss the incident.

"That was just Chris - alone, underneath 12 guys stomping him, punching him, kicking him, the American on the team was holding his leg down so he couldn't get up", Moldovan said on SEN. The game was called off after the remaining Philippines players fouled themselves out, with Australia declared the victor 89-53.

Maker, who plays in the National Basketball Association for the Milwaukee Bucks, said he was "deeply disappointed" in the brawl, but that he acted to protect his teammates. "We're playing in a world championship or Olympics, it's an automatic suspension the next game and that could be the game that decides what you do".
