The Australian Rollers produced another clinical performance to easily account for Colombia 62-46 to improve their record to 4-0 at the 2014 IWBF World Wheelchair Basketball Championship in South Korea.
Coming off three impressive wins over European opposition, the Rollers were again impressive from the outset, absorbing everything the plucky Colombians could throw at them.
Tristan Knowles top-scored for the Rollers, with a team-high 13 points, finding support from Shaun Norris (12 points, five rebounds and three steals), Justin Eveson (10 points and seven rebounds) and Brad Ness (12 points on 6-of-9 FG).
The Rollers set the tone early, racing to a 10-0 lead inside the opening three minutes before the Colombians rallied late to cut the lead to just three points at the first change.
From here the Rollers outscored their opponents 34-19 over the next two quarters to establish an unassailable 18 point advantage heading into the final period.
The Rollers next 2014 IWBF World Wheelchair Basketball Championship challenge comes tomorrow against Turkey at 1:15pm AEST.
