Australia-Philippines erupts in all-out brawl

Basketball's global governing body has opened disciplinary hearings against Australia and the Philippines after their World Cup 2019 Asian qualifier descended into chaos with 13 players ejected for brawling during the match.
A whopping nine players were ejected from the games, meaning that, according to Fox Sports Australia, the game had to continue five-versus-three.
As the Filipino bench emptied, wild punches were thrown, kicks launched and objects thrown, including a courtside chair in a shocking incident that will have repercussions for both teams once an investigation by the global basketball federation (FIBA) is concluded.
"We are extremely disappointed with what happened and our role in it", the statement continued. "We don't play the game in that spirit".
It started with a couple of fouls by Philippines player Roger Pogoy against Boomer Chris Goulding, which saw Aussie Daniel Kickert retaliate by throwing an elbow back at him. "We have briefed our lawyers on that, as you would expect us to do".
"The teams are in different ends of the field of play, with the referees in the middle".
Moore said the visitors kept their players and coaches courtside after the game and sought help from the Australian embassy to get the team safely out to their bus and their hotel.
During a closed-door practice on Sunday, the Australian team took liberty in peeling off FIBA-approved decals on the floor over "safety concerns" for its players.
However, Moore confirmed the Boomers may have unwittingly riled the hosts by tearing up advertising boards that players had slipped on the day before the game. "So, we find that an extraordinary allegation." . "I hope our players, as true sportsmen, will honor whatever the decision FiBA will be graciously", he said.
Following the game, both teams did not hold a postgame press conference as deemed necessary by FIBA.
