  • [01] Condemnation over players' melee at int'l basketball game

    (ANA-MPA) -- The relevant deputy culture and tourism minister on Friday expressed his stern condemnation over a bench-clearing scuffle on Thursday evening during a basketball match between the Greek and Serbian national men's teams in Athens. The two teams were playing the last game of the "Acropolis" tournament, a tune-up of the upcoming World Basketball Championship in Turkey, when several players joined an on-court melee.

    Deputy Minister Giorgos Nikitiadis made the statement, while the latest reports state that FIBA, the international basketball federation, will also punish individual players, despite the fact that the match was played as a friendly.

    The entire incident was shown live on Greek state television before showing up on numerous websites and blogs around the world.
