Steelers on track for back-to-back gold

RYLEY Batt and the Australian Steelers will aim to complete back-to-back gold medals when they clash with USA on Monday morning.

The Steelers qualified for their chance at taking home gold after defeating Japan 63-57 on Sunday morning.

They didn’t put Japan away until the final quarter and Batt said the job is still not done.

“We’re not done yet; we want to settle for the gold medal, not the silver medal,” he said.

“I’ve been in this position many times and we’ve made a mistake once and got too excited so we’ll come out swinging, America is the team to beat.

“We’ve got one more game, then we can have a long break and a cold beer.”

Tip-off is 1.30am.
