It most likely bodes the end of service time for Rui, however. The second round of the FIBA qualifers do not start until September, and the Gonzaga forward will be back at practice and in classes. It was a good run of experience for Rui and it will be interesting to see how his game has developed by partaking in the tournament.

I was puzzled when I looked at the schedule yesterday. Who does it accommodate?

Everyone?

The tournament they are qualifying for is next summer. There's no reason to rush 2 rounds.

Hopefully they won't be facing the Philippines anymore.

This was disgraceful.

Australian players and staff left a couple of their guys to be ground and pounded by the whole Philippines team, staff and fans it appears.

You can see from the start of that video the player from the Philipines who had the ball tried to connect with an elbow before he got rid of it. Then he did connect with the elbow a second later. Than kicker came in after seeing it. If Kickert doesn't come in with the flying elbow the rest doesn't happen. At some point you have to let the referees sort things out and not come in with a flying forearm/elbow yourself.

I didn't see the ref coming in to call the first elbow thrown on the drive, or the second away from the ball, by the same Philippines player. Had they gotten there and called the first, the second wouldn't have happened. If they had gotten there and called the second, Kickert would not have felt the need to retaliate. Blaming the whole thing On Kickert is ludicrous. The Philippines should be banned from international play until they learn the game. If they feel the need, ban Kickert as well, and the refs in the game should be banned for life as well as the announcers.

Luckily, no one knew how to fight! This could have ended much worse.

Yeah, I don't think there is an abundance of hockey players in either of those 2 countries!
