Trey Lyles leads Canada’s Junior National team to opening victory over Puerto Rico at 2012 FIBA Americas

Indiana Hoosiers commit Trey Lyles posted a monster double-double of 17 points and 16 rebounds in just 20 minutes to pace four Canadian players in double-figures in the 77-51 opening game route of Puerto Rico.

Lyles dominated the game in the opening half by scoring 16 first-half points in the first 20 minutes. The Saskatchewan native’s size was simply too much for the Team Puerto Rico as Canada built a 43-17 half-time lead.

Jamal Reynolds (Pickering, ON) was aggressive, attacking the rack, and finished with 11 points and a team-high five made free-throws. Andrew Wiggins continued his assault on foreign competition with 9 points and seven rebounds in just 19 minutes.

The Canadians will look to improve to 2-0 when they face Columbia in their second game of the 2012 FIBA Americas championship in Brazil.
