The Canadian National team are now in the knockout stages of the 2015 FIBA Americas, finishing second in their group after a 112-92 win over Puerto Rico Friday.

Andrew Wiggins led Canada with 19 points, leading the team in scoring for the third out of four games. This game would have been a match-up against Trail Blazers forward Moe Harkless, but he was forced to pull out from the tournament because of an ankle injury.

Canada lost their opener to Argentina, whom they will be avoiding in the knockout stages of the tournament.
