Canada Stays undefeated downs powerhouse Serbia at 2011 FISU Games

Canada’s FISU team earned a 70-67 come-from behind victory over defending FISU Champions Serbia.

Warren Ward (Ottawa Gee-Gees) and Tyson Hinz (Carleton Ravens) both scored 14 points to lead the Canadians in scoring. Michael Lieffers (Saskatchewan Huskies) also added 13 points and pulled down 8 rebounds in the victory.

“I said it yesterday and I will say it again today, we are a resilient group, we aren’t going to back down, and we aren’t afraid to grind it out,” said Warren Ward

“I honestly think that the CIS moving to the FIBA rules a couple of years ago has made our Canadian kids that much faster and able to handle this type of game,” said Team Canada head coach Kevin Hanson. “We could tell that we were wearing them down, Serbia wanted to play in the half court and use their size, and we didn’t let them. I’m proud of the guys for this win, but that being said, this isn’t a double-elimination tournament, we still have games to play to get out of our pool, but this gets us that much closer.”

The victory marks Canada’s second straight comeback win, the Canadians currently top group B and sit at 2-0. Their next game will come on Tuesday against a tough Australian squad.
