G’day from Australia!
Day 2 of the competition against Australia started with a disappointing loss to Australia, 59-52. The team got off to a poor start with some unforced turnovers. But, the team re-focused and closed the gap to four points before losing out at the end of the game with desperate play to try to gain the last few points.
With a point to prove, Team Canada addressed its gaps in the break between games and came out flying in Game #4 of the series. At one point, Canada moved ahead by five points. It became very apparent that both coaches wanted to win with top line-ups being played for most of the game. In the end, Canada pulled out a strong win 50-49 with lots of positives and team energy. Tomorrow, we end the series with the ‘rubber match’ with the series tied at 2 wins for each team. It has been an excellent 11 days in Australia and tomorrow will be a great opportunity to cap it off with a strong performance. Go Canada Go!
