The women's team of Mali lost last night (Monday) 81:68 to the team of Serbia as part of the World Championship held in Australia.
Nothing particularly exciting and surprising, but what happened after the game caused the FIBA to set up an investigative committee.
During an interview of one of the Serbian players after the victory, the Serbian TV camera caught a violent confrontation that broke out in the Mix Zone between two of the Mali players, who exchanged blows and only with the intervention of the other players Mali's riot calmed down.
The two players apologized for the incident, but the FIBA announced: "Following the incident, we have decided to open an investigation. As soon as we reach our findings, the FIBA will announce the disciplinary measures taken.

Today, after Mali was defeated 88:65 against Canada and was eliminated from the championship, Kuroma appeared before the media and apologized: "We are here to apologize for this incident that was also published on the social network. This was not our goal. We were frustrated because of the loss and we are here to apologize to FIBA .
