Team Canada drops semifinal to Russia

Canada was overwhelmed by a big, powerful Russian team and lost its semifinal game of the FIBA U19 Cup, 65-41.

No Canadian player achieved a good performance. Alyssa Jerome had five points, two rebounds, two assists and a block. Laeticia Amihere had four points, eight rebounds (the team high), a steal and a block.


Team Canada will go for the bronze against Japan on Sunday morning at 9:30 am Pacific time. The USA and Russia will battle for the gold at noon.

Note:The semifinal games were not available for viewing on YouTube in the United States. Assuming that will also be the case for the medal games, your only choice for watching the games on Sunday is livebasketball.tv.
