INCHEON, South Korea - Australia's men's wheelchair basketballers have scored a miracle comeback win over Turkey to advance to the final of the world championships.

In their semi-final in the South Korean city of Incheon on Sunday, the Rollers were a massive 20 points behind at halftime but stormed home to snatch victory 63-58.

The triumph sets up a gold medal match against the United States as Australia aim to defend their 2010 crown and exact revenge on the team that inflicted their only defeat at this tournament.
