The U.S. Olympic Women’s Basketball team is moving on.

Behind a Breanna Stewart-led offense, Team USA avenged their exhibition loss to Australia, taking them down 79-55 to cruise into the semifinals.

Stewart put up her best Olympic performance to date, hammering home 23 points and five rebounds to lead the way for Team USA. She also went 8-for-10 on shooting and was named Player of the Game.

Brittney Griner was also on her game, dropping 15 points and eight rebounds alongside Chelsea Gray who contributed eight assists.

Next up, Team USA will face Serbia for a spot in the gold medal game. At the Rio Games in 2016, the U.S. crushed the Serbians 110-84 in their Olympic debut. This time around, Serbia finished second in Group A and eliminated China in the quarterfinals.

The two teams will face off on Friday, August 6.
