    That is most of Canada's top talent except for Elijah Fisher (2023) who is our next big time prospect (on the Wiggins, Barrett level) and Zaiden Cross. Not sure why either are not there.

    Should be a solid team and likely the Sliver medal favorite.

    Very in-depth review of the Canadian team here - going through each player.

    https://forums.realgm.com/boards/vie...f=32&t=1845465


    Should be a fairly strong Canadian team, with a solid amount of high level prospects.

    Dominican Republic:

    Entre los 12 jugadores, hay tres debutantes en el equipo nacional: Nomar Tejada del Distrito Nacional, Luis Peña de la provincia La Altagracia y Giancarlo Farias residente en Nueva York.

    El resto de la selección es el mismo que estuvo en el pasado Centrobasket U15 de México: Jean Montero, Huascar Cuevas, Silvano Grullón, Breylin García, Edixon Gómez, Yuhanser Ynfante, Ángel Pimentel Montás, Álex Ventura y Handerson Silverio.
    https://almomento.net/seleccion-sub-...no-de-la-fiba/

    The player to watch is Montero, who scored 15.4 ppg as one of the youngest players at least year's U17 WC, and then scored 31 a game to lead the DR to the Centrobasket U15 championship.

    Puerto Rico:

    El equipo quedó conformado por Johned Walker, Jeremy Figueroa, Jesús Sierra, Sebastián Santiago, Geancarlo Peguero, Eric Navarro, Zabdiel Santana, Kendric Dávila-Díaz, Gregory Limage, Mikkel Cintrón, Arnaldo García y Joshua Rivera.
    https://www.elvocero.com/deportes/de...748a08c22.html

    Walker, Garcia, and Figueroa were the top players at Centrobasket last year.

    Day 1:
    Canada 101 Uruguay 63
    Brazil 72 Puerto Rico 58
    Dominican Republic 71 Mexico 66
    USA 83 Argentina 57

    Nightmare start for the US, trailing 25-8 early in the second quarter after shooting something like 3 for 25. They tied the game by halftime, opened up a lead in the third, and pulled away in the fourth, but never really played their best...the bigs struggled to finish against a packed defense and Argentina was able to make it a halfcourt game. OTOH when you don't play great and still beat Argentina by 25 you have a pretty strong team. Will Jeffress got hurt late in the first quarter and didn't return, but according to Twitter it's not a serious injury. In the other Group A game the Dominicans pulled off their own comeback win over Mexico and tomorrow they play Argentina in a crucial game for quarterfinal seeding.

    Canada and Uruguay combined for 59 fouls in their game.

    Puerto Rico 69 Uruguay 58

    42 points and 11 rebounds for Montero in DR's win over Argentina.

    Day 3:

    USA 122 Dominican Republic 71
    Argentina 84 Mexico 75
    Canada 96 Puerto Rico 76
    Uruguay 68 Brazil 55

    US-DR was actually 46-44 late in the first half, before the US scored 13 points in a row going into the break. Once the game got away from the Dominicans they rested their starters and they lead just grew and grew. US shot 22-39 from three, which has to be a record for this tournament. AJ Griffin sat out for the second straight game with a sore hamstring.

    Uruguay's upset of Brazil shakes up the quarterfinal pairings a bit:

    USA-Puerto Rico
    Argentina-Uruguay
    Dominican Republic-Brazil
    Canada-Mexico

    From the US standpoint I'd rather have played Uruguay, but PR hasn't shown anything in this tournament.

    Any chance Brazil threw that game in order to avoid Argentina?
    Despite losing to DR - Argie looks like a deeper, better team.

    I didn't watch but Brazil's starters played normal minutes so it seems unlikely. I think they are just shooting terribly--Motta who had 28 against Argentina and 36 against Uruguay at the South American U15 last year is 6-36 from the field in this tournament, and as a team they are 10-66 from three.

    Quarterfinals:
    Canada 95 Mexico 78
    Dominican Republic 73 Brazil 71
    USA 102 Puerto Rico 51
    Argentina 62 Uruguay 53

    DR wins it on a floater by Cuevas with 1.1 seconds left, after Brazil had scored six in a row to tie the game.

    US started off slow for the fourth straight game, and didn't shoot well from outside, but were too physically dominant for PR.

    Mexico's Bonilla with 27 points and 20 rebounds in a losing cause against Canada. He plays for Barcelona and is going to the NBPA Top 100 camp next week. Didn't do much against the US but had big games against Argentina and now Canada.

    Best four teams qualified, I think, but USA-Canada finals are becoming inevitable at these tournaments.

    Championship: USA 94 Canada 77
    Third Place: Dominican Republic 80 Argentina 77 (Montero 49 points 12 rebounds 6 steals)
    Fifth Place: Brazil 78 Puerto Rico 61
    Seventh Place: Mexico 74 Uruguay 68

    US opened up a lead in the second quarter and while Canada got within six in the third quarter, it was a double-digit margin most of the time.

    All-Tournament Team: Nembhard (CAN), Houstan (CAN), Montero (DOM), Livingston (USA), Duren (USA)

    Chris Livingston named tournament MVP after 23 points on 10-15 from the field in the final.
