EuroBasket 2022 took a bizarre turn on Sunday during Georgia's double-overtime win over Turkey. According to Turkish officials, Furkan Korkmaz was attacked near the locker room by Georgian players after he was ejected from the game, and the federation is threatening to leave the tournament if they do not receive security footage of the incident.
In addition to the alleged attack on Korkmaz, Turkish officials claim that dozens of Georgian police -- the game was being played in Tbilisi -- continued the violence after the game.
Turkey has lodged an official protest of the game, claiming that 22 seconds mysteriously ran off the clock
