Hopes were high after a dramatic overtime win against the United States.
However, the Canadian Men’s Basketball squad came up short against Brazil in the Pan Am final. Winding up the games with Silver after an 86-17 loss.
The game was never really in doubt as terrible start by the Canucks saw them down plenty 26-13 after the first quarter.
Brazil continued to dominate in the second an third quarters with the South Americans up by 25 at one point.
The scrappy Canadians did rally to make something of it with an early 9-0 run in the fourth, but Brazil was able to withstand the momentum and increase their lead before the final buzzer.
22 year old Timberwolves start Anthony Bennett was the top scorer in the game with 18 pts in defeat.
