WHERE ARE EWING AND GRAHAM WHEN YOU NEED THEM:

Georgetown basketball exhibition in China ends in brawl (Gene Wang, 8/18/11, Washington Post)

What began as a goodwill trip to China for the Georgetown men's basketball team turned violent Thursday night when its exhibition game against a Chinese professional club deteriorated into a benches-clearing melee in which players exchanged blows, chairs were thrown and spectators tossed full water bottles at Hoyas players and coaches as they headed to the locker room.

Georgetown Coach John Thompson III pulled his players off the Olympic Sports Center Stadium court with 9 minutes 32 seconds left in the game and the scored tied at 64 after a chaotic scene in which members of the Georgetown and Bayi Military Rockets teams began swinging wildly and tackling one another.


His old man's 1984 team could have taken on the Red Army.
