Both of the semifinals on Friday were matchups from the same region. In the battle of the Americas, the United States made it clear early that Canada still has work to do, winning 83-43. The merger of Asia and Oceania was supposed to be an opportunity for Australia to dominate a new area, but that has not proven to be the case. They had a chance to take a step towards that at home against a new threat, but China managed to escape with a 61-59 win to mark their own ascendency, though they had to play without their most consistent player this tournament.
