The Boomers extended their unbeaten run at the Nouhad Nawfal Stadium after blasting defending champion China 97-71 in their quarterfinal duel on Thursday. Australia led by just three points at the half before dominating the third period 26-13 to take control.

Jason Cadee led the Boomers with 20 points while Mitchell McCarron added 17. Mitch Creek and Daniel Kickert added 16 points apiece for the Australians, who led by as many as 28 points.
