Basketbrawl: Australian Boomers in wild on-court fight against the Philippines in FIBA World Cup qualifying match

The score ended in Australia's favor at 79-48, when officials called off the game after repeated (and seemingly intentional) fouls from the Philippines.

A largescale brawl broke out during a FIBA World Cup qualifier between Australia and the Philippines on Monday.

A total of 13 players were tossed out in the Aussies' 89-53 default win - a game that did not even finish with the Filipinos not having enough players to field with 14 minutes left to play.
