Game 5 Recap: AUS vs SWE

Going into this game, many hoped for a close game of thrills and spills. Sweden is known for its aggressive play, as is Australia, and both teams feature dominant high-point players. Right from the opening tip-off, however, Australia sent a message that players would have to bring their A games to best the dynamic duo of Ryley Batt and Chris Bond. Australia jumped out to an early lead and were comfortably ahead 16-10 at the quarter. Despite a few brief Swedish runs, Australia remained ahead for the duration of the game, winning 60-47.
