"Following the incident that occurred in the third quarter of the Philippines-Australia game on Monday in the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 Asian Qualifiers, FIBA will now open disciplinary proceedings against both teams", the statement read.

Maker, who plays for Australia, launched himself into a scrum of players who were wrestling near one of the baskets before turning, running at an opposing Philippines player and attempting to kick him before retreating toward midcourt.

The all-in-brawl broke out at the Philippine Arena, south of Manilla, when Australian Boomers player Chris Goulding was sent crashing to the floor after a heavy shove from a Filipino player.

In retaliation, Aussie Daniel Kickert threw an elbow at Pogoy before players and officials from both sides, plus a number of unruly fans, flooded the court.

Players and management could be seen wrestling and strangling each other courtside - with Australia's Nathan Sobey having a chair thrown at his head before he was pinned down on the ground.

"I want to appeal to everybody to please settle down". From the Philippines, Japeth Aguilar, Jeth Rosario, Roger Ray Pogoy, Terrence Bill Romeo, Matthew Wright, Calvin Abueva, Andray Blatche, Carl Bryan Cruz, and Jayson Castro were disqualified.

Commentator Shane Heal said the call to continue the game was "laughable".
