12FAU18W - Big 61-40 win for Canada against Mexico
8/17/2012


Gurabo, Puerto Rico - Canada scored an important second victory in the FIBA Americas U18 women defeating Mexico, 61-40.

The game started with both teams erratic on offense, specifically a Mexican team that scored only two points in the first, a fact that Canada could not to take advantage of. The first ten minutes of the game ended 10-2 in favor of Canada.

The second began with a run of 8-2 by the Mexicans, who were able to make it into the paint with ease to make a competitive game, down by just two points (15-17) with 1:33 left in the quarter.

However, the Canadians were able to do what winning teams do and closed the first half strong with a 6-0 run that led them to the locker room with an 8-point advantage, 23-15.

And the Canadians never looked back, opening the third with another 6-0 run, increasing their lead on the scoreboard to 15 points.

Canada proved to be a TEAM. All players looked for to pass first and that was the difference against a team from Mexico who looked disorganized on offense and without communication on defense.

The game ended 61-40, a victory for Canada in a must win game for their 2013 FIBA World U19 hopes to still be alive.

The best scorer of the game for the Canadians was Paige Crozon with 13 points and 7 rebounds, helped by Kaylee Halvorson who scored 12 points in the victory. For Mexico, the best Maria Faz with 11 points, 10 rebound and 6 blocks.
