Australia Through To World Cup Semi-Final

Australia has advanced to the FIBA 3×3 World Cup semi-final, where they’ll take on China at 10:10pm AEST tonight for a spot in the final.

The team of Bec Cole, Maddie Garrick, Alice Kunek and Keely Froling defeated 2017 champion Russia in the quarterfinals thanks to a fantastic defensive effort. Australia restricted Russia to just 13 points, taking home a six-point victory and moving one step closer to the gold medal.

If Australia defeats China in the semi-final, they will take on the winner of France v Hungary in the final at 2:50am AEST on June 24. If Australia losses, they will face the loser of the France v Hungary game at 1:40am AEST on June 24.
