SYDNEY - Australia qualified for the Asian Cup quarterfinals with a 4-0 win over Oman on Tuesday, ensuring the hosts advanced along with two-time champion South Korea from Group A.The Socceroos set up the win with goals from Matt McKay and Robbie Kruse and a penalty from Mark Milligan in the first half.

Oman plays Kuwait, both out contention, will play in Newcastle.Oman had proved to be a troublesome opponent for Australia since their first meeting at the Asian Cup in 2007 — where only an injury-time equalizer by Tim Cahill salvaged a point for the Socceroos. The Oman lineup started brightly again, with Raed Salehs fierce volley from 25 yards acrobatically saved by Mat Ryan after three minutes.Australia made the first breakthrough, though, when Massimo Luongos corner kick was headed toward goal by defender Trent Sainsbury, and Matt McKay bundled the ball past goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi in the 27th minute.Winger Robbie Kruse added another three minutes later after he took a Luongo chipped pass in his stride and slid a shot under the advancing Al Habsi.Oman was lucky not to be reduced to 10 men after midfielder Ahmed Mubarak lunged at Australia stand-in captain Tim Cahill, with Japanese referee Ryuji Sato opting to only issue a yellow card.Australia made it 3-0 in first-half injury time when Kruse crossed to the far post for Milligan to volley powerfully home, only for referee Sato to disallow the goal and instead give Australia a penalty for a foul on Cahill during the same play.Milligan scored from the resulting penalty to the delight of the 50,276-strong crowd — the highest attendance of the tournament.Australia coach Ange Postecoglou withdrew Cahill and Luongo in the 51st minute, keeping his promise to rotate players during the tournament and bringing in striker Juric and veteran Mark Bresciano.Australia played at a slower tempo after the substitutions, but Juric added a fourth in the 70th after receiving Leckies curling cross and volleying his shot past Al Habsi.Juric had two more good chances, but hit the post and had another shot brilliantly saved by Al Habsi from a header.Postecoglou made three changes to the team that opened the Asian Cup, with Mark Milligan replacing injured captain Mile Jedinak.West Bromwich Albion defender Jason Davidson came in for Aziz Behich at left back, while McKay also got his first start of the tournament for attacking midfielder James Troisi .

Patrick Patterson stole Deron Williams inbounds pass and made the go-ahead jumper with six seconds left, and the Raptors stopped a five-game winning streak by the Nets for the second time this month with a 104-103 victory Monday night. Toronto dropped Brooklyn to 10-2 in January and opened a 2 1/2-game lead in the Atlantic Division over the Nets, who would be on the doorstep of the division lead if they could solve their neighbours to the north. "These guys are chasing us but theyre putting it together. Theyre playing well," Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry said. "Were the only team that beat them in 2014. I mean, thats a tough team. They had the game and we made a play and we made a shot." Brooklyn had a three-point lead with 17 seconds left behind Paul Pierce in his best game with the Nets, but John Salmons scored on a drive with 12 seconds remaining before Brooklyn took its last timeout to move the ball into the frontcourt. Patterson stole the pass and fed Lowry, who got it back to Patterson for his jumper. Pierce was well off on a final attempt. "We knew they didnt have any timeouts. We guessed right and Patrick looked like Richard Sherman out there with that steal," Lowry said, referring to the Seattle Seahawks defensive back who attended the game with a number of his teammates. Lowry finished with 31 points and seven assists for the Raptors, who clinched a winning record in consecutive months for the first time since December 2009 and January 2010. Pierce scored 33 points, making seven three-pointers in a strong bounce-back performance after going just 2 for 10 in his emotional return to Boston on Sunday. He had the Nets in position to win after scoring their last nine points before Toronto stole it. "Last night was a tough game to play in, so many emotions," Pierce said. "It was good to just get some normalcy back today and I felt comfortable, relaxed. But it wouldve been better if we got the win today, though." The stunning turnaround deflated the crowd at Barclays Center for a back-and-forth game that drew a visit from several Seahawks, who will hold their Super Bowl media day Tuesday at the Nets last home, the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. Sherman and Bobby Wagner ggrabbed a baseline seat in the first half, while Russell Wilson and other players sat above in a private box.dddddddddddd Jonas Valanciunas had 20 points and 13 rebounds for the Raptors, who played without injured leading scorer DeMar DeRozan. Terrence Ross, who tied a franchise record with 51 points and made 10 3-pointers Saturday, had a quiet 10 points on 3-of-9 shooting. But Toronto got a big boost from Patterson, who ditched the mask he began the game with for a recent broken nose and finished with 15 points off the bench. "This is all about our toughness, our resiliency," Patterson said, "no matter whos out there during the course of the game, no matter whos not playing." Andray Blatche scored 20 points for the Nets, who lost 96-80 in Toronto on Jan. 11, a night after they played two overtimes in a victory over Miami. Lowry scored six straight points before Amir Johnson made a pair of free throws during an 8-0 run that gave Toronto a 94-85 lead with about eight minutes to play. The Nets answered with nine in a row to tie it on Alan Andersons jumper, and after Valanciunas basket, Pierce nailed consecutive three-pointers to make it 100-96 with 2:37 remaining. "Paul played well," teammate Kevin Garnett said. "He totally carried us for that fourth quarter, that second half, and we all came in and just said at the end of the game weve got to make plays, weve got to close games out and tonight we didnt do that." Toronto cut it to one and had a chance for the lead when Lowry stole Williams pass intended for Pierce, but Williams redeemed himself by drawing an offensive foul on Lowry with 19 seconds left. Pierce then made two free throws, but the Nets couldnt overcome Williams next giveaway. "Two turnovers in the last minute of the game, its not what I typically do, but thats how it goes sometimes," Williams said. There were eight lead changes in an entertaining second quarter, two in the final 1.3 seconds. Andersons three-pointer put the Nets up by two, but Lowry beat the buzzer from beyond halfcourt to give Toronto a 57-56 halftime lead. NOTES: DeRozan had made 125 consecutive starts. ... Ross, DeRozan and the Nets Mirza Teletovic were all nominated for last weeks Eastern Conference player of the week award, which was won by Atlantas Paul Millsap.
