VIDEO: Georgetown Basketball's Brawl With Bayi Rockets In China

Video of Georgetown basketball's brawl in China with the Bayi Rockets has emerged via Tim Burke of SportsGrid, and it makes the fight that went down in the fourth quarter of the two teams' exhibition game look even worse than the scary details and photos had portended.

The nearly two-minute video, which Burke "obtained from a Chinese source," shows Georgetown player Jason Clark getting angry after being fouled by Rockets player Hu Ke, engaging him in a shoving match, and igniting a full-scale brawl. Clark is immediately swarmed by a number of Chinese players as both benches storm the floor, pushed down, and apparently kicked and stomped. Smaller scuffles break out throughout the arena, with chairs whizzing through the air and wielded as blunt instruments.

The fight itself appears to have been defused after about 30 seconds of chaos, but the Chinese crowd lets the Georgetown team have it as the Hoyas walk off the court, expressing their displeasure loudly and throwing projectiles — water bottles, the Washington Post reported — at the players.

There was a chance that the horrifying pictures of the Georgetown-Bayi Rockets fight cast a small skirmish as a much bigger deal than it was. Now, after seeing the video, it's possible that the pictures didn't capture quite how bad it was.
