Maybe the U.S. and China should stick with ping-pong when it comes to sporting diplomacy.

A brawl broke out Thursday during an exhibition basketball game between Georgetown University and a Chinese team in a contest that was intended to be a goodwill gesture coinciding with Vice President Joe Biden's visit to China.

The fight occurred with 9 1/2 minutes left in the game as both teams' benches ran onto the court. The foul-filled contest between Georgetown and the Bayi Rockets was immediately called off once order was restored. The teams were tied, 64-64, when the game ended.

Georgetown Coach John Thompson III expressed disappointment at what had happened.

"Tonight, two great teams played a very competitive game that unfortunately ended after heated exchanges with both teams," Thompson III said in a statement. “We sincerely regret that this situation occurred.”
