THE intragroup stage may be over but before we move on to the wee hours of Monday morning, it would be remiss to not revisit the Boomers' best moments from the Group D games.
IF FIBA genuinely has any stake in ensuring its international events are pristine and played with no foxing - let alone fixing - then it needs to revisit its post-intragroup stage.

CAN’T help thinking it would have been a great investment for Basketball Australia to have flown Ken Cole into the Boomers camp ahead of the World Cup opener against Slovenia.
YES, that was a lot more like it. The Boomers looked like the team they want to be as they demolished Korea 89-55 in their second World Cup game in Gran Canaria.

NOW, we all have it clear in our minds, right? World Cup preparation is just that, preparation. It is the preseason, so to speak.
THE Opals have jumped right back into the winner’s circle, beating Brazil 66-63 in a World Championship warm-up in Istanbul.
UP-and-down day for our national teams on tour ahead of World Cup and World Championship campaigns respectively, the Boomers up, the Opals down.
IT may have been my favorite play of the London Olympics – “Dellavedova to Baynes for the dunk.”
OK. Just between us? The aspect I found most impressive today in my interview with new Basketball Australia CEO Anthony Moore was simply this – he is genuine.
OUR bronzed Baby Boomers are heading home from FIBA’s World Under-17 Championship in Dubai with the Silver Medal after scaring the hockey-pucks out of the USA in the Gold Medal game today.
MARK it down – August 15, 2014. What a great day it was for Australian basketball.
BEN Simmons, Thon Maker … add Isaac Humphries to the list of young Aussies heading to the NBA in the short-term future.
OUCH. Got to admit, losing to Finland doesn't fill you with optimism but I am still a glass-half-full guy.
JUST when you thought it was a bad day for basketball in Australia, Sydney Kings go and announce Josh Childress as their newest NBL import.
THE Baby Boomers have survived a second tough challenge by holding out France 84-81 at the FIBA World Under-17 Championship in Dubai.
