Sorry Kickert admits elbow "regrettable"

Boomers veteran Daniel Kickert admits he "overstepped" the mark by elbowing Philippines guard Roger Pogoy in the face and has thrown himself at the mercy of FIBA as they consider sanctions.

Kickert is likely to receive a long suspension from the global governing body for his hit on chief Filipino aggressor Pogoy, which sparked the ugly third-quarter brawl.

"I was put in a position where I obviously made an action which was regrettable and unfortunate," Kickert told reporters after landing in Brisbane on Wednesday morning.
