The Australian Boomers take on Angola on Thursday night in the last game of their FIBA World Cup group play.

The match is slated to start at 9:30 p.m. AEST.

The match will be broadcast on ABC2 in Australia and ESPN3 in the United States.

Live streaming will be available via ABC in Australia, Watch ESPN in the United States and other areas, and LiveBasketball.TV around the world.

The Boomers are sitting comfortably in third place in Group D with a 3-1 record and 7 points. The team is guaranteed entry into the next phase of the tournament, which is the knockout rounds and starts on Saturday.

The only thing left to see for the group play is which position Australia ends up in. A win could move it up the standings, which would change its matchup for the first round of group play.

Lithuania also has a 3-1 record while Slovenia is atop the group with a 4-0 record.

Angola and Mexico each have a 1-3 record and will be looking to win to try to nab the fourth spot. The top four teams in each group advance to the next round.

Korea is at the bottom of the group and has been eliminated with an 0-4 record.

There are a number of teams that Australia could face from Group C in the first round of the knockout play, most likely Ukraine, the Dominican Republic, or Turkey.

The Boomers opened the tournament with a 90-80 loss to Slovenia but then beat Korea 89-55, Lithuania 82-75, and Mexico 70-62.

The team is led by Joe Ingles and San Antonio Spurs player Aron Baynes.
