An angry mob of about 300 Taiyuan basketball fans held a busload of Beijing players hostage last night for 90 minutes.

They threw bricks at the distressed athletes, after an emotionally charged match in the capital of Shanxi Province turned into a bloody brawl.

The fracas started when a player from Beijing Jinyu hit a harassing fan of the rival Shanxi Zhongyu club with his elbow outside the exit tunnel.

Jinyu had just lost the fourth stage of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) semi-final to the home team 100 to 102 at Binhe Sports Center in Taiyuan at 9:30 pm, a witness told the Global Times.

Outraged fans of the home team started attacking Jinyu's players and then surrounded their bus on the parking lot, swearing at the players and demanding an apology.

"We are trapped on the bus. People are throwing bricks and anything else they can pick up," posted Jinyu's point guard Stephon Marbury on his Sina microblog at 10 pm.

A phone call by the Global Times to Marbury was cut off in the midst of apparent chaos before the New Yorker could answer any questions.

Angry fans assaulted Beijing players before they could flee to their bus, according to Sina's sports report update.






"There are so many of them (local fans) that even the security cannot stop them," the update quoted Jinyu's Zhai Xiaochuan as saying, "Many of us were injured."

Local police arrived at the stadium but did not intervene for a while, according to the eye witness.  

"I have required strengthened security at their hotel," CBA's league affairs director Bai Xilin told the Global Times, who was communicating with local CBA officials from Beijing.

The Jinyu players were finally able to leave at 11:10 pm.

why dont you state which team had the most african players

and which teams players were africans and how they were involved

this article is completely meaningless propaganda

all pertinent information has been withheld in order to ignorantly pretend that african people had nothing to do with their violence

as if it was all directed at the Chinese

I watched the whole game. It was sensational play. But the fans in Shanxi home court are maniac. At the last 3 minutes of the game, they started throwing bottles and other stuff onto the court, for a technical call they were not happy with.

It's shame
