The final game against Australia started extremely well with both teams trading blows and causing turnovers. At halftime both teams were even, but Australia took advantage of our ball-handling errors to squeeze out a 64-58 score. The game was high-paced and there was a lot of attacking play by both sides. Although the final game was extremely disappointing the 12-game trip has been very successful. We certainly have gained a lot of valuable information about our line-ups and the strengths and weaknesses of Australia.
We will announce our Toronto 2015 squad at the beginning of July as we now prepare for the Para Pan Am Games in August. Tonight we enjoy a pub dinner with Team Australia who have been excellent hosts. We have an early morning flight so it will be early to bed. Thank you to everyone who has supported Team Canada on this trip and a big thank you to the staff and players of Team Canada who have represented Canada extremely well this trip.
Signing off from Australia….
