    There are games in August that will be on the west coast. Also, a window in November so it will be interesting to see who plays on that roster.

    Check out the Global Jam https://www.basketball.ca/globljam games start today with some of the top U23 aged players from bot the men's and women's sides. Games are in Toronto so go support if you are lucky enough to live in the area.
    It's Argentina who is first up for Canada in August and so we better have some NBA talent on board and then 2 days letter it will be Panama .. Maybe guys like RJ ( who will be signed by then ) and Murray will be on that August team ..

    What does this mean for us going forward?
    Do we have more games on the immediate horizon?

    It was complete and utter destruction... 113 CAN - 67 Virgin Islands

    After winning six in a row at this level, (first time for Canada to win 6 in a row) Canada automatically moves into first place of their group at the next level of the battle for the Americas when games begin late in August. My understanding is that it now goes like the typical NBA playoff format in that Canada's first opponent will be the worst of the teams that have moved to that round, so they get an easier path to the finals.

    Olynik and Powell played very well as bigs, while SGA and Kassious Robertson filled up the net. KR hit 8 threes. Nickeil Alexander-Walker came up big with a very balanced game, 11 points and some strong defense. Canada led from start to finish and won by just two points less than their 48 point margin in their last game against the US Virgin Islands. The Walker cousins fit in seamlessly with the rest of the squad and looked as if they had been playing together for years. The Scrubs played great D and forced numerous turnovers while also hitting some shots. The whole Canadian team was just on another level compared the the Virgin Islands, as they should be.

    It's in my Clendar. As well as a reminder to remind YOU.

    Facts, but he's been slowly improving during his NCAA career. He used to run with the worse posture ever. LOL. He'll get there. He loves basketball and knows what his flaws are.
    Yes he was smart to stay in the NCAA .. Hopefully playing with NBA bigs in practice at Canada basketball will help with his growth .

    The first quarter of the game against DR showed the benefits of having players commit to playing together. The Dominican squad were more integrated in their play and were obviously more familiar with each other. Canada took the first two quarters to sort things out and then were in control. Kelly looked as good as I've seen him on the national team for the last few years. The Alexander cousins were huge and Dwight Powell brought it in the second half.

    Hopefully, these guys can get it done on Monday and nail an entry ticket for the FIBA tournament.
