"All of this was happening while Dalembert, the Philadelphia 76ers centre was nowhere to be found. Dalembert, who joined the national team after being granted Canadian citizenship last summer, was innefective against Slovenia and was singled out by Rautins. Instead of responding Dalembert wasn't available for Canada during the do-or-die game, although it wasn't clear exactly the circumstances. He didn't appear to be on the Canadian bench during the game."
