Ivica Zubac, Dario Saric Engaged in Wild Nightclub Brawl

Ivica Zubac and Dario Saric had a nightclub brawl in Greece early on Monday, shortly after being kicked out of the Olympic qualifiers.

Footage from TMZ Sports showed Zubac arguing with someone at the Bolivar Beach Bar, as others tackled him. Saric then rushed to the scene to help Zubac, but was immediately taken into custody and taken down by another man.

Zubac eventually retreated, he and Saric were pushed towards the exit.

The Croatian Basketball Federation has already said that its players were acting in self-defense.

“When we were hanging out at the club in Athens, some of our players were insulted and attacked, which made them defend themselves,” the federation told TMZ. “The incident was brief, thanks to the quick intervention of the team’s security personnel.”

It is not clear what caused the conflict.

To rub salt in the wound, Zubac and Saric will fly home as they are one win short of qualifying for the Olympics.

Their Croatian team lost to Greece 80-69 in a do-or-die game for one of the final spots at Paris 2024.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led Greece with 23 points, eight rebounds and three assists.
