A free-for-all broke out in the 4 minute mark of the 3rd quarter of the Philippines vs Australia match with the Boomers comfortably up 79-48.
Roger Pogoy gave Chris Goulding a slight shove after colliding in mid-air which dropped the high-scoring Australian guard. Big man Daniel Kickert then charged at Pogoy and gave the Gilas shooter an elbow to the head.
This triggered a free-for-all with Gilas players targetting Kickert.
After a long delay, nine Gilas players and four Boomers were ejected from the game.
The Aussies eventually won via default after Gabe Norwood fouled out leaving only June Mar Fajardo and Baser Amer as the Philippine team’s only available players.
