For the third day in a row, the Canadian U18 national team walked away with a double-digit victory at the FIBA Americas U18 Championships in Colorado Springs.
On Sunday, Canada knocked off Puerto Rico, 91-70. That gives Canada a 3-0 record (other two wins against Brazil and the Dominican Republic) in Group A preliminary play.
While USA Basketball U18 team is loaded from top to bottom with highly-touted recruits, Canada has also displayed its up-and-coming talent this week in Colorado.
Findlay Prep (Nevada) three-star 2015 small forward Dillon Brooks poured in a game-high 26 points. Harvard-bound Chris Egi stuffed the stat sheet on Sunday afternoon with a 20-point, 14-rebound, 4-block effort. Huntington Prep (West Virginia) wing, struggled against Puerto Rico, shooting 3-of-12 for nine points, but the No. 22 overall recruit in the Class of 2015, according to Rivals, is the second leading scorer in the entire tournament, behind Brooks.
Canada advances to the FIBA Americas semifinals, playing either the U.S. or Argentina on Monday. That game is set for a 5:15 p.m. EDT start.
