Australia's Lauren Jackson has become the all-time leading scorer in Olympic women's basketball as the Opals clicked back into medal gear with a grinding six-point win over Brazil.
Playing at her fourth Games, Jackson scored 18 points in the 67-61 victory on Wednesday to surpass her former arch-rival and US great Lisa Leslie.
Along with Jackson, rising star Liz Cambage was also brilliant for the Opals after an indifferent opening to the Games, with nine first half rebounds among a 16-point, 10-board haul.
Shocked by France in overtime in their last match, the Opals came out firing and took total control with a 12-2 run through the first and second quarters to open up a nine-point break.
With Cambage and Jackson staying out of the early foul trouble which has plagued them in London, Australia controlled the boards to open up a 13-point halftime lead and hold Brazil to just 18 first-half points.
Cambage did much of the grunt-work at both ends with her giant presence under the basket at both ends, and also chipped in important points.
Jackson stepped up in a see-sawing third quarter, moving past Leslie's previous mark of 488 Games points with a free throw late in the term as the Opals restored their lead to 11 by the break.
But the Brazilians would not go away, and clambered back to within four points with 16 seconds left.
Fittingly, Jackson made the match safe with two clutch free throws and an important rebound which allowed Australia to soak up the remaining time.
With two wins and a loss in the tournament so far, the Opals face huge a match next-up against Russia, who won their opening two games and play later on Wednesday.
The top four teams in the group go through to the quarter-finals.
But the Opals will want to finish as high in the group as they can to avoid having to play gold medal favourites United States before the final.
Earlier France ensured themselves a quarter-final berth with a 64-60 victory over Canada to be unbeaten in their opening three matches.
