Woe Canada: From 27 to 5! Canadians letdown 2013 March Madness

From 29 to 5

Only five Canadians players remain as the 2013 Sweet 16 draw is set.

There were a record of 27 Canadians playing at this years NCAA tournament.

Turns out, after the tournament was halved in the frenzy of the first four days, the red-and-white scheme proved a bad strategy. When the Madness began, there were 29 Canadians in contention. The likes of Olynyk and Pangos scored more than half their team’s points, both games, but, in the Round of 32, could not withstand the assault of three-pointers from No. 9 Wichita State. UNLV, meanwhile, lost right away, shooting badly from the field, led by a 4-for-11 performance from Bennett.
