    WELLINGTON, New Zealand — Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut and his Australia teammates have qualified for next year's Olympic basketball tournament.

    Bogut scored 10 points, pulled down 11 rebounds and had two blocks as Australia beat New Zealand 89-79 on Tuesday in an Oceania qualifying game to earn its place in Rio de Janiero.

    Bogut was in doubt because of a back injury, but his play helped the Aussies win the two-game aggregate series by 22 points following a 71-59 victory in the first leg.

    Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Matthew Dellavedova added 14 points, Chicago Bulls forward Cameron Bairstow had 10 and San Antonio Spurs guard Patty Mills scored nine for Australia.

    New Zealand still has a chance to make it to Rio through another qualifying series next year.
