Fight breaks out during Gilas-Australia game

FIBA Gilas Group B set up for explosive finish

Teammate Daniel Kickert's aggressive retaliation on Pogoy then sparked an all-in brawl that included punches, elbows, kicks and objects hurled at players.

In total, 13 players were ejected from the game in the aftermath, including Maker.

The ejection of the nine players left the Nationals with just veterans Gabe Norwood and June Mar Fajardo, and the debuting Baser Amer.

Australia's Nathan Sobey, Goulding, Maker and Kickert were also ejected.

In the end, the match was eventually forfeited by the home Filipino side with 1:57 left in the third quarter and Australia leading 89-53.

In a freaky aftermath, the game resumed after the fight and ejections with five Boomers and three opponents, then eventually had to be called off when two of the Philippines players intentionally fouled out.

The Philippines are on track to qualify for next year's FIBA World Cup as long as they could find some wins in the second round of qualifying against middle eastern nations.

Basketball is not supposed to be a full-contact sport, but a FIBA qualifying match between Austalia and the Philippines got brutal after one foul led to a massive brawl. We will wait for referee's decision, but please I would like us to respect the game'.
