A three pointer with 1.7 sec left - gave Canada an 86-83 OT win over Argentina to claim the bronze. Canada was down 60-50 with 7 minutes to go.

USA defeated Brazil 81-78 to win Gold.

The Under 17 tournament starts in Germany tomorrow. Canada seems to have a good team. Canada played Spain in a pre-tournament game, and blew a 12 point lead in the fourth quarter to lose 88-79. Canada is in a group with Spain, Germany, Poland and Australia. USA, Argentina, Serbia, Egypt, China and Lithuania is in the other group...
