It was to be a show of sports diplomacy as the Georgetown Hoyas are in China on a 10 day trip to play some basketball. The game last night between the Hoyas and the Bayi Rockets was called off with nine and half minutes left in the fourth quarter.

A bench clear brawl broke out with fights breaking out all over the court. Punches were thrown, water bottles were tossed at the Georgetown players as they went back to the locker room.

This isn't the first time for the China players to be involved in a situation like this. They have been fined by the world and Asian federations for getting into fights with their opponents.

Georgetown is scheduled to play again Sunday in Shanghai.
