Canada grabs bronze with blowout win over Argentina at U18 FIBA ​​Americas Championship

It wasn’t the desired colour, but Canada’s U18 men’s basketball team earned a bronze medal Sunday by dunking Argentina 81-57 ​​at the FIBA ​​Americas Championship tournament in Tijuana, Mexico.

Canada wanted to play the powerhouse United States squad for gold, but Brazil defeated the Canucks 78-77 in Saturday’s semifinals to prevent that matchup.

Michael Nwoko and Vasean Allette paced Canada on Sunday with 20 points apiece, while Elijah Fisher and Dylan Grant each chipped in with a dozen points.

Santiago Trouet led Argentina with 12 points, while his teammate Diego Collomb scored 10. The US beat Argentina 98-60 in Saturday’s semifinals.
