Fowler and Deegan combined for first four points of the game, utilising their size to seal positions down low.

That edge in the paint allowed Australia to continually reel in the offensive rebounds which gave them several second chance points.

The extra possessions also kept the ball out of Ukraine’s hands as they struggled to trim the deficit with Australia taking charge.

The Aussies moved in front 10-3 midway through the game as Porter drilled a couple of nice runners before Smith connected on another drive to open up a game-high 11-point advantage.

Ukraine were able to hit a couple of late free-throws but Australia finished with a 16-6 victory as they advanced to the Semi-Finals to take on France.
