Georgetown basketball has moved on from last Thursday's brawl against a team made up of players from the China army, but the aftermath of the much-discussed brawl continues days later.
The Hoyas defeated the Chinese professional team Liaoning Dinosaurs 91-69 Sunday in its first game since the infamous Thursday game in Beijing against the Bayi Rockets which turned ugly.
Georgetown is in a 10-day goodwill trip in China, and more news has surfaced since last week's melee. Reports on the game said the crowd was poorly behaved, and the officiating was extremely questionable, with both teams engaged in physical play.
The fight started after harsh fouls on a loose ball. Chairs were thrown as the brawl carried over into the stands.
Dan Levin of the New York Times recently pointed out that a Chinese basketball coach was recently suspended after his team protested his physical and verbal abuse, which included beating the players.
Head coach John Thompson III said he cleared the air with the coach of the Rockets and said the fight did not have political connotations.
Considered among the most respected college basketball programs in the nation, Georgetown is mainly composed of underclassmen. The NCAA imposes strick punishments on college athletes for fights.
Here's a video of last week's brawl.
