Two comfortable wins over Germany and Nigeria bookmarked their narrow win against the Italians. There will be no easy route to a first-ever Olympic medal for the Australian Boomers despite Brian Goorjian’s team finishing atop their group in Tokyo. While they haven’t looked as fluid in the offense as they would have preferred to, they have been able to rely on their defensive solidity. Australia ranked second for steals per contest and third for rebounds, among all the teams in the group stage. If boomers win QF they will play the winner of USA VS Spain in a semi- finale and get two shots at a maiden medal. Australia beat Argentina last month when a Patty Mills buzzer-beater proved the differences in a Las Vegas warm-up game.
