From there, things get insane, with benches clearing and all-out chaos.

National Basketball Association veteran Andray Blatche, of the Philippines, was also one of the notable players involved in the fight that were ejected. The crowd threw bottles and other objects toward the court as order was restored.

In total, 13 players were ejected from the game in the aftermath, including Maker. Whilst former Wizards and Nets man Andray Blatche, Terrence Romeo, Jayson Castro, Carl Bryan Cruz, Calvin Abueva, Roger Pogoy, Troy Rosario, Japeth Aguilar and Matthew Wright were the nine players disqualified from the Philippines team. The brouhaha resulted in 13 ejections - including Australia's Thon Maker of the Milwaukee Bucks - and left the Philippines with three players.

Several Gilas players couldn't avoid commenting on the incident despite a gag order issued by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas.

"I just want to appeal to everybody to please settle down". "We never meant to be disrespectful or to challenge Philippine basketball". We told them wag na pansinin, focus on the game.




A Filipino official at the arena asked those present to "show respect to our friends of Australia".

"The decision (s) will be communicated in the coming days". Gilas claimed that Kickert was hitting several players during the pre-game warmups.

"I understand the disappointment, I understand that some are embarrassed, but you don't know what happened".

"No disrespect was intended and the team has since apologized for the error in judgment to Philippines Basketball, the fans, and FIBA", the statement closed.

Anthony Moore, chief executive of Australian basketball, apologized to fans, adding that "this is not the spirit in which sport should be played and certainly not in the spirit in which we aim to play basketball".
