The Georgetown men's basketball team... (LINK TO VIDEO OF FIGHT)

...gets into a fight while playing a Chinese team.

Here's the video.

The fight took place during a Thursday night (Chinese time) game.

For now, as the Associated Press reports, the Hoyas are continuing its tour.
Georgetown is in China on a 10-day trip which has been cited by the U.S. State Department as an example of sports diplomacy that strengthens ties between the two countries. The Hoyas were briefed by the State Department ahead of their departure on what to expect during its trip to Beijing and Shanghai, according to news releases on the university's website.
"We remain grateful for the opportunity our student-athletes are having to engage in a sport they love here in China, while strengthening their understanding of a nation we respect and admire at Georgetown University," Thompson III said.
