The Canadian national team needs just one victory to secure a spot in the World Cup that will be held in the summer of 2019. They are the only unbeaten team in the Americas zone qualifying tournament with their record of 8-0. Venezuela is 7-1.
In preparation for the match that will take place at the Edmonton EXPO Centre later this week, the team held their training camp in Edmonton earlier in the week.
Due to scheduling conflicts with the current season, Canada’s top NBA players are unavailable for the current window, despite the fact that they have participated in past windows. Canada is currently rated No. 18 in the FIBA World Rankings. Instead, the roster is filled out by players who are mostly active in international competition.
Acting head coach for the time being is Nate Bjorkgren, who is normally an assistant coach for Nick Nurse, who also coaches Canada and the Toronto Raptors.
Eighty national teams are competing in games across six different qualifying windows in order to earn a spot in the FIBA World Cup, which will take place in Japan and the Philippines from August 25 to September 10. The tournament will feature a total of 32 teams.
