China vs US Georgetown Hoyas Baskeball Team Brawl

A friendly match between Georgetown University and the Shanghai Bayi Rockets, a professional Chinese squad with ties to the People's Liberation Army ended in an ugly brawl with 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter. This incident occurred during a visit to China by U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and had been billed by the teams as a "goodwill" contest.

Members of the Georgetown Hoyas team were hurled plastic water bottles they left the court.


In just less than a year, the Chinese were also involved in another brawl, but that was with the Brazilians.
