So Georgetown went over to China to play in an exhibition game so as to expand international interest of the game but there wasn't much goodwill on display as fouls racked up and eventually a bench-clearing brawl broke out in the fourth quarter of the game. Reports say that chairs were being thrown and that both players and coaches had to dodge water bottles being thrown from the stands. Sounds like a crazy time to say the least. Here’s part of an account from a Georgetown fan who was there in person watching the game and the madness unfold.
“Two minutes into the fourth, they were pressing full court, trapped one of our guards (I forget who it was), and then must have pushed or punched him on the ground after he made the outlet pass, because then there was a shoving match and then a bit of a fight, and then the whole thing set off. He tried to get away as quickly as possible as the Chinese players sort of converged on him, and then benches cleared, and then people on the Chinese bench started picking up chairs. Everyone on the other side of the court started fighting as well. Brawl spread all over the court, and then off the court. After it kicked off it immediately became possible for the crowd to get involved, and then they did. As we tried to get the team off the court, bottles (plastic ones, thankfully) came out of the crowd at the team and everyone left. Security was there (sort of), but it was more equivalent to mall cop-quality security rather than actual security. The Georgetown staff wanted the security to get on the floor, but honestly these guys didn't have a clue what to do. They escorted the whole alumni contingent out fairly quickly after that. Game over, 64-64 (following another intentional foul).”
