Australian Women Advance To World Cup Quarterfinals

The Australian women have advanced to the quarterfinals of the FIBA 3×3 World Cup, after finishing second in Pool B.

Bec Cole, Alice Kunek, Maddie Garrick and Keely Froling will battle Russia at 1:00am AEST on June 23 in the quarterfinal, with that game to be streamed live on the 3x3Hustle Facebook page.

In their final two pool stage matches, Australia played out a pair of thrillers, defeating Japan in overtime but losing to France by a single point.

Garrick nailed a game winning two-pointer in overtime against Japan, sending her teammates into a massive celebration.

A tight affair against France could have gone either way, but the power of the French side was ultimately too much for Australia to overcome.

The Australian men’s team were eliminated from the World Cup yesterday.
