Caboclo had played 9 minutes and 21 seconds in the first half (scoring three points) when coach Guidetti called him to the bench. In the second quarter the coach asked Caboclo to enter on the court but the forward refused to enter.
“Bruno Caboclo committed an act of indiscipline refusing to enter on the court when the coach requested him to do that. We cannot allow any player to commit any act of indiscipline while wearing the jersey of the Brazilian National Team” told Renato Lamas, the manager of the National Team.
Brazil lost the game 99-76.
