Canada Women B-Ballers Still Alive For Olympic Berth
After a tough quarterfinal 59-56 loss to Croatia that dropped them into the win or go home knockout semifinal games today, Canada defeated Argentina 58-41 today to reach the final game at the FIBA Women's Olympic Qualifying Tournament being contested in Ankara, Turkey.
Their opponent will be Japan, who knocked off their fellow FIBA Asian Zone rival Korea 79-51 to advance to tomorrow's pressure packed game for the final Olympic women's basketball berth.
Good luck ladies and don't sleep on Japan. If you do your next chance to play basketball on the Olympic stage won't occur until 2016 in Rio.
