Canadian men’s basketball team clinches Olympic berth en route to World Cup quarterfinals

The Canadian men’s basketball team have punched their ticket to next summer’s Olympic Games in Paris.

Canada defeated Spain 88-85 in a FIBA World Cup match on Sunday in Jakarta to advance to the quarterfinals of that tournament.

That win, combined with losses by Brazil, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, clinched a FIBA Americas spot at the Olympics for Canada.

More to come.
