The FIBA World Cup was over on Sunday and to no surprise, the United States won the gold medal. It was great to see Australia make a comeback and win the silver medal. Spain won the bronze medal and Belgium finished a historic fourth place. However, Team Canada did not fare that well. After finishing group play undefeated, they lost to Spain in the semi finals and barely beat Nigeria to finish in 7th place. This was a disappointing ending to a promising start for the Canadians and once again, the Canadians have work to do if they want to medal in these top competitions. We shall just have to wait to see the Canadians can improve and get better.
