Australia shattered Japan’s aspirations with a decisive 109-89 victory on Tuesday night, clinching the final spot from Group E for the Second Round of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023. Putting their recent close defeat against Germany aside, the Boomers took command from the outset.

However, they had to weather a relentless comeback by the home team, fueled by an enthusiastic crowd at the Okinawa Arena. The Boomers’ triumph ensured their campaign’s continuation in the tournament.
