Team Canada Vs Team Jamaica
here's a chance to support Canadian basketball...tickets are on sale now




Canada Basketball will welcome Team Jamaica to the Mattamy Athletic Centre on August 8 and 10 for the 2013 edition of the Jack Donohue International Classic (JDIC). The two-game series will see the Senior Men’s National Team (SMNT) take the court against a talented and athletic Jamaican squad.


Canadian Men’s Basketball Team vs. Jamaican Men’s Basketball Team
Thursday, August 8 and Saturday, August 10
Mattamy Athletic Centre, Toronto, Ont.
Tip-off: 7:00 p.m.

The event – named after the Canadian coaching legend – is a Canada Basketball tradition which has seen teams from across the globe travel to Canada to take part in exhibition matches. While this international friendly will provide meaningful competition, it is also the first opportunity for Head Coach Jay Triano to introduce the team to its fans on Canadian soil.

The two games will help prepare the SMNT for this September’s FIBA America’s Championship for Men in Venezuela. Ten teams will compete for the right to represent their country at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain. Canada will play in Group A with Uruguay, Puerto Rico, Brazil and their JDIC opponents – Jamaica.

Raptors74 08-08-2013 05:42 PM

jeffb 08-08-2013 09:02 PM

Heslip is a 3pt machine :jack:

Acie 08-08-2013 09:04 PM

Dude's on fire and doesn't get a touch for a million straight possessions.

Who's coaching this shit show?

jeffb 08-08-2013 09:10 PM

Nice :clapping:

This team with Olynyk/Bennett/Wiggins would be very good.

Shadowfax 08-08-2013 09:14 PM

entertaining/chippy game :yeah:

Dario 08-08-2013 09:38 PM

heslips shot looks almost exactly like nash's shot

Wow watched the game came away very impressed by Tristan Thompson. Not because of his game it's his demeanor. He wants to win not afraid to get into people's faces and his leadership is great he really brings the team together.

Thompson and Joseph are the first wave. Bennett the second wave and third with wiggins coming.

It's really exciting I enjoyed that game more than any raptor game this year go canada go
