The Australian men's basketball team has been cleared by world governing body FIBA after investigations into allegations the Boomers deliberately lost a match at this year's World Cup in Spain.
Australia rested two of their top players in their upset 91-83 loss to Angola in their last Group D game in Gran Canaria, the result meaning the Boomers would avoid playing the United States until the semi-finals of the knockout phase.
At one stage the Boomers were up by 15 points in the match.
FIBA has concluded their investigation into the game and found that Basketball Australia has not violated its Internal Regulations.
The investigation consisted of footage of the game played on September 6th in Gran Canaria as well as reports by the supervising commissioner and experts, along with a letter from BA's Chair Scott Derwin and was discussed at FIBA's Executive Committee meeting held on November 24 and 25.
FIBA Secretary General and International Olympic Committee (IOC) Member Patrick Baumann says they're very happy to announce that our investigation has cleared Australia of violating the Internal Regulations.
"As one of our most active national member federations across men's, women's and youth basketball, we know we can count on Basketball Australia to wholeheartedly endorse the principles of fair play and ethical behaviour outlined in FIBA's Code of Conduct and Fair Play."
Australia ended up crashing out of the tournament in their first match of the knockout stage after being beaten 65-64 by Turkey in their last-16 encounter.
