Shameful... Georgetown got punked by a bunch of commies. If you’re gonna brawl on foreign soil, at least have the stones to give some beat downs.

If you look closely at the very beginning, it appears that one of the Chinese players started this by thrusting his knee into one of the Georgetown guards. Also, I think this is a professional Chinese team against 18 to 22 year old American kids.

The entire thing is disgraceful but the commies look like cheap shots to me.

From what I've read of the incident, it was the Chicoms that instigated it. They were getting away with cheap shots all night, and the refs were not calling it. One Commie even had words with our coach. Our boys apparently had enough of that.

In fairness to Goergetown, this chinese team has been fined thousands for instigating fights with teams throughout Asia, according to reporting.

LMFAO. Basketball fights are always sissy slapfests. I bet an American pee wee hockey team would beat up these Chinese “pros”.

“... they were getting away with cheap shots all night and the refs were not calling it”.

If so, then go Hoyas! I’m not defending certain types of behavior but I have seen fist fights at high school football games when the refs don’t make the proper calls. I am thinking that all that energy plus testosterone = whoop a$$?!!

They targeted our AMERICAN players - anyone who takes the Chinese side better check their jerseys. JTIII runs a clean program with good kids - don’t stereotype Gtown based upon notions of teams past.

Seems to me that the Chinese were playing awfully dirty, and instigated the entire fight.

And by the way, considering how wacked out many kids in that demographic feel about my country any patriotic loyalty on my part towards them would need to be earned.

Wow. I hope the next team that plays China has basketball as the second thing on their mind.

Who is that aggro coach screaming profanities at the officials? Definitely not Chinese.

If this chinese team has a record like that, then we need to ask who was the dumbass that agreed for Gtown to play them. Biden??

Some incidents arise that can justly be blamed on American (usually black) thugs, but this isn’t one of them. It appears to me that nearly all the blame belongs on the Chinese side — on the Chinese military professional players and Chinese spectators, some of whom got involved in the fight, and others threw objects at the Americans. Security too was to blame.

[Notice that in the second photo (post 25) the person in the white shirt that’s kicking an American player who is on the floor and relatively helpless isn’t even wearing a uniform.]

The Chinese seem to be to blame for the brawl against Brazil too. The big Chinese rebounder who gets stripped of the ball (cleanly) at about the one minute mark is definitely to blame for that part of the incident. They appear to be most responsible for the rest too, but the video has been edited, so we can’t know whether something that would make the other side look bad too has been left out.

>>> Our goodwill ambassadors from Georgetown are making us feel proud /sarc

I wonder if you and a few others here would be so quick to dump on the US team if there were a few more whites.

I don’t even watch basketball but I was aware of the China vs Brazil fight shown in post 23. The China thug-style of basketball isn’t a new story.

Unfortunately I have to agree. I also think the comments would be a tad different.

I'll cop to that.

And I can give you a list of mile long of the reasons why.

I’m the one who posted the video of the China/Brazil fight, so I’m certainly not one who is dumping on the US team.

I would have thought I was clear when I quoted the other fellow’s racist slur on our American team.

You on the other hand were pinged because I referenced your proof of the Chinese dirty tactics.
