Australia retained leadership in Group B of the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers after it defeated the Philippines, 89-53, in a highly emotional match at the Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan, that saw a fight break in the third period that eventually halted the contest.
Up 79-48 with just over four minutes to play in the third quarter, Kickert reacted angrily to a foul on a teammate and elbowed an opponent.
Team mate Daniel Kickert retaliated immediately with an elbow of his own before the game descended into absolute chaos with a flurry of punches, kicks and chairs being thrown.
Basketball Australia Chief Executive Anthony Mooresaid the team would depart the Philippines on Tuesday morning instead of later in the day as planned. "It was of course the height of being unsportsmanlike but at the same time we appreciate that it's something that we have to be sorry about because it should never have happened", Roque said during a Palace press briefing.
"We apologize to our fans and will await the penalties to be handed down".
"FIBA will now open disciplinary proceedings against both teams".
"I would wait until the sanctions come down from FIBA then Basketball Australia can make a decision based on whether they thought they were appropriate or not", Black said.

"We want to appeal to everybody to please settle down", he said. "It is not only a universal human reaction in a team sport, but for those who have played the game, looking after each other is part of the brotherhood among team members", Angara said.
Moore said Basketball Australia later apologised to the Philippines Basketball Association. "I found that very unusual, in a tinderbox environment to continue like that".
In further weird scenes after the game was abandoned, the Filipino team were seen smiling and taking selfies on court, something Moore described as "strange".
