  • Timothy Burke

The Georgetown basketball team played an exhibition this morning in Beijing against Bayi Rockets, one that ended in a brawl and the Hoyas being taken off the court.

SportsGrid has acquired video of the incident from a Chinese source:

Georgetown coach John Thompson IIIissued the following statement after the game:

Tonight, two great teams played a very competitive game that unfortunately ended after heated exchanges with both teams. We sincerely regret that this situation occurred. We remain grateful for the opportunity our student-athletes are having to engage in a sport they love here in China, while strengthening their understanding of a nation we respect and admire at Georgetown University.

UPDATE: We have synced the video above to the new video posted by WJLA:
