Yesterday the Georgetown Hoyas men’s basketball team was in Beijing for a pre season basketball tournament. The purpose of this tournament is to spread basketball over seas and gain exposure for American college sports.

The Hoyas were matched up against the professional team Bayi Rockets.

In the second half, fouling issues had tensions at their peak. As a Georgetown guard was fouled int he corner, a bench clearing brawl broke out.

This is his rundown of what happened:
