I saw a little video this morning. Man, the Chinese were doing the Mexican hat dance on that one dude.

Big East teams play and extremely physical style of basketball and I'm not surprised the Chinese construing this as dirty play. I'm sure it wasn't the Hoyas intent to start a fight, physical play is a requirement for survival in their conference. If you don't believe me, watch a Georgetown - Pitt or West Virginia - Connecticut game ...

Alternatively, the People's Liberation Army team (known for starting brawls) was pissed that they were tied by a bunch of college kids (despite having 57 free throws, 28 of which were at half-time compared to G-Town's 11), and decided to flex some muscle.

Reminded me of the Chinese Olympic football team and QPR going crazy a few years back. Video.

Pitt is the worst. I still carry irrational hate towards them for a tournament mugging they put on the Badgers a few years ago. Holy crap that was back in '04!

Georgetown probably felt like they were playing Duke in Durham.
