Thirteen players and two coaches from both teams were sanctioned by basketball's governing body FIBA following the incident in the Asian qualifying fixture in Bulacan on July 2, which was eventually abandoned, with Kickert suspended for five World Cup qualifiers, Maker for three and Goulding one.
Following a thorough evaluation by a group of experts of the officiating during the game, the FIBA Secretary General has decided that the referees of the game shall be removed with immediate effect from the FIBA Elite Program and shall not be nominated to any worldwide competitions organised or recognised by FIBA (including at Zone and Sub-zone level) for a period of one year.
The referees are Ahmed Al Bulushi of Oman, Hatim Alharbi of Saudia Arabia, and Paul Skayem of Lebanon.
The referees have been banned from officiating for a year. It's not just the calls on the court. Head coach Vincent "Chot" Reyes was suspended for one game and fined for unsportsmanlike behavior, as was the national federation.
The Philippines, known as Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas, will play their next home game behind closed doors, and were given a suspended ban of a further two games for the next three years.

The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) also said it would fine the national Philippines basketball organization 250,000 Swiss francs ($250,000) and the Australians 100,000 Swiss francs for unsportsmanlike conduct. Only Gabe Norwood, June Mar Fajardo, and Baser Amer were spared from FIBA suspensions.
10 Filipino players were reportedly banned for a total of 35 games, while their coaches were also banned and fined and their basketball organisation on the receiving end of a fine in excess of $300,000.

'FIBA wishes to emphasise that it condemns any form of violence, both on and off the court, ' a FIBA statement read.
'We are seeking further clarification from FIBA about possible sanctions against other officials and fans involved in the incident'. Whilst it is unlikely we will do so this is a matter that will be considered at a scheduled board meeting of Basketball Australia tomorrow.
"Respect, sportsmanship and professionalism are expected from players, coaches, officials and all other stakeholders at every game".
