    I thought he had retired. Is he really an active player?

    He has been retired from pro 5x5 for two years, but has been very active repping Canada for 3x3.
    I guess he is in good enough shape to play.

    He played in a number of WC Qualifiers and was fairly decent. Plus you take away the NBA, G League 2-ways, EuroLeague and he is among the better centers left over for Canada. I don’t know who would be better than Landry that is clearly available to play. Joel Anthony was a thought be he is now indeed fully retired. Dejan Kravic? But he seems to be in Serbia’s fold.

    Domincan Republic announces its final 12 man roster for the upcoming Americup Qaulfier hom and home series.
    Víctor Liz
    Rigoberto Mendoza
    Gelvys Solano
    Eloy Vargas
    Ronald Roberts Jr.
    Juan Miguel Suero
    Luis Montero
    Ángel Delgado
    Adris De León
    A. Henríquez
    M. J. Rhett
    M. Dicent


    This is a pretty good roster. Lots of guys from their summer World Cup team (6 of top 8 MPG players) including 3 starters & PPG leaders - Victor Liz, Elroy Vargas & Gelvis Solano. Rigoberto Mendoza, Luis Montero & Ronald Roberts had big roles off the bench. Plus some meaningful reinforcements in Delgado & Rhett

    Recall the Dominican Republic beat Germany & Jordan at the 2019 FIBA World Cup. Lost a close one to Australia & was beaten handily by France & Lithuania. All in a better performance than Canada. Canada has a few bench players returning from the WC but no starters returning and really just role players in Keane, Klassen, Phil Scrubb and Morgan - none who really played key roles (maybe Scrubb). By that description the DR seems like a more formidable team and the the favorite in these games - but if you look at the talent of the individual players and the quality of clubs/Leagues they are playing for Canada seems to have a decisive advantage.

    Together is seems these teams stack up well and we will likely see competitive games that could go either way.

    Canada has that game stolen from them.

    That last second three was good yet it was called a 2 pointer to send the game into overtime - when 4 of 5 Canadian bigs were already fouled out.

    Here is the video.

    Game winning 3 ruled good by ref two feet away staring at Conor Morgan's feet. Head ref overturns call without video proof. The angles we saw on TV were bad angles and inconclusive. Certainly nothing to overturn a call on the floor. And video proof surfaces after the game clearly showing it is good. Canada files formal protest - FIBA denies - with wording making it sound it is not a protestable event (which seems insane). Not a good look for FIBA.

    Here is Canada Basketball's presser:

    I sure hope that ref is demoted and never works at this level again. That is the definition of a "stolen game".
