Australian Boomers toy with China in London


The Australian Boomers destroyed China in a test event at the London Invitational Tournament to open the new London 2012 Olympics facility. 

Australia took out the match 71-43, with Peter Crawford putting up 15 points (3/8 3PT), possibly scoring himself an outside shot at a Boomers berth when the Olympics roll around in a month. David Barlow scored 14 points, whilst Damian Martin snared a game-high seven rebounds along with six assists, in his normally well-rounded performance. He also threw this handy alley-oop to AJ Ogilvy:


Chinese star Yi Jianlian, known for his inconsistency, had a disappointing 7 points on 2/11 from the field on an underpowered Chinese squad. He did throw down this dunk though:


Australian stars Patty Mills, Brad Newley, Joe Ingles and Matt Nielsen did not play.
