A dominant performance in the fourth quarter let Australia crush Argentina and advance to the semi-finals of the Olympic Tournament.

Argentina remained competitive for three quarters (18-22, 39-33, 58-48), but Australia took over late in the game.

With a stellar performance on both ends, the winners outscored their opponents 37-11 to cruise to the victory.

Australia will now face Team USA in the first semi-final of the tournament on Thursday.

The other semi-final will see France take on Slovenia.
