Filipino Basketball Player Chose to Stay Out of Insane ‘FIBA Brawl’ Because His Mom Was There

Thanks to his mom being present at the FIBA-sanctioned basketball game, one Filipino player kept his cool and did not join the infamous bench-clearing brawl during the match between Australia and the Philippines.

A total of 13 players — nine Filipinos and four Australians — were ejected from the game after the melee broke out with over four minutes left in the third quarter of the 2019 World Cup qualifier on Monday night.
