At the European Basketball Championship in Tbilisi, Georgia, there was a scandal on Sunday evening. According to several media reports, there was a physical altercation in the dressing room after host Georgia defeated Turkey 88-83. According to the Turkish assistant coach, the Turkish professional Furkan Korkmaz is said to have messed with three Georgians.
The Turkish federation threatened to leave Tbilisi. "If we don't get the security camera footage, we will leave this tournament," Onan later said. For Turkey, the narrow defeat after two overtimes was the first in the tournament. There had already been heated arguments between players from both teams on the pitch.
