LOOK: Twitter reactions to Gilas-Boomers ‘basket-brawl’

Last night’s FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers game between Gilas Pilipinas and Australia Boomers broke into a brawl that resulted to the ejection from the game of 13 players. The game between the two teams got physical with 4:01 remaining in the third quarter after Roger Pogoy shoved Australian Chris Goulding with Australia leading the boards at 79-48.

Australian Daniel Kickert threw an elbow to Pogoy’s head, which seemed to have started the fight.

Twitter discussions were just as heated as the brawl on the court. The people on the said social media platform were divided. Some said that what happened was unprofessional and lacked class while others came in support with the players.
