Georgetown's men's basketball team is regrouping after a "friendship" game against a Chinese professional squad in Beijing devolved into a violent fracas.
The brawl broke out Thursday during what was supposed to be a goodwill exhibition game between Hoyas basketball players and China's military-sponsored team, according to Associated Press.
Sparks flew with about 10 minutes to go, when the the game tied 64 to 64.
Photos and video of Chinese players and Georgetown's basketball team exchanging blows spread like wildfire on the Internet soon after the incident and overnight.
Georgetown Coach John Thompson III pulled his team from the floor after the fight and they left the arena without finishing the game.
The matchup coincided with Vice President Joe Biden's trip to China, but he was not in attendance; he had seen Georgetown play a different team earlier this week.
This isn't the first time players from this Chinese team have been caught on a world stage throwing blows.
In October, the team's manager, coach, and three players were suspended for fighting with with a Brazlian team, which left one athlete in a neck brace.
The Hoyas have now moved on to Shanghai, where they have more games scheduled.
