SAITAMA, Japan (AP) — Patty Mills scored 24 points, Jock Landale added 18 and Australia pulled away for an 89-76 victory over Germany and an undefeated finish to group play.

Utah Jazz forward Joe Ingles scored six points on 2-8 shooting, including 2-6 on three-pointers. He added five rebounds, three assists, and three steals. Ingles posted a plus-11 rating during his nearly 27 minutes of action.

Former Jazzman Dante Exum added eight points, four rebounds, three assists, and a steal.

Nic Kay helped the Australians finally break free in a close game and finished with 16 points.

The Australians went 3-0 to win Group B, a balanced pool where they, Italy and Germany all played competitive games against each other.

Italy finished second at 2-1 and Germany will hope to be one of the two third-place teams that will reach the quarters along with the top two teams in each of the three pools.
