Default Italy defeats Canada 81-75, brawl ensues

I could neither find much information on the game nor detailed stats; it just ended a few hours ago. I know only that Belinelli scored 22 points (team-high) and was the player of the game according to Italian media. Bargnani had 7 rebounds. The two sides broke out into a fight at the end of the game.

RealGM has a thread on the topic: RealGM • View topic - ITALY-CANADA: august 1st, 2009

For those who can read Italian, here's the article from which I got most of my information: Italia, vittoria e rissa - La Gazzetta dello Sport: Basket

Hopefully highlights and box scores will be available tomorrow.

I heard that Italian tanks have 9 gears...9 gears that are all just varying speeds of reverse.

Hopefully highlights emerge..

That joke does not make sense in this context. Were you just waiting for any Italy-related post to use it?

Just saw the brawl on Realgm/youtube. Real dirty suckerpunch by the Italian guy. Disgusting.

It's out of jest, Italian is interchangable. If they engaged in a brawl with little grey men from Zeta Reticuli, I'd use that. It's not my intention to offend anyone. Feel free to deride Canada, my citizenship is not restricted to its borders -I'm a citizen of Earth.

Obviously, there is too many Italians on Toronto's squad.

Bargnani played peacemaker. I kinda wish he'd hit somebody.

Hehe, no offense taken dude. I was just curious as to whether you were referring to the game or not

LMAO Leo is holding the whole Italian team back.

What a cheap shot by that Italian. Jeez.

Neither Bargs or Belli threw one punch. I'm not sure if thats a good thing or not.

...that's a good thing. Under no circumstance should this thuggish behavior be supported (and I'm not referring to self-defense).

bjjs is right, Mancinelli's action was unwarranted and reprehensible.

So does Belli

I bet if he was still in GSW he would have.

Why the hell did that guy throw that punch, anyway? Just frustration, or did the Canadian do something wrong. I didn't pay very good attention.

That is a dirty hit but I am glad to hear Belinelli played well.
