Canada are the two-time defending champions of the tournament, having won both the 2015 and 2017 editions. In this year’s championship they topped Group A with a 100% record from their four games, having beaten Mexico (109-53), Cuba (87-51), host nation Puerto Rico (78-50) and Dominican Republic (78-50).
That four-game winning streak took Canada’s total to 16 straight wins in the FIBA Women’s AmeriCup, with their last loss in the championship being way back in the Final of the 2013 tournament.
To date in the FIBA Women’s AmeriCup 2019, Canada’s four wins have come with a combined advantage of 148 points at an average winning margin of 37 points per game. Brazil are not likely to be such easy prey.
Brazil finished runner-up to the USA in Group B, winning their first three games before going down 89-73 to the Americans in their final group game on Thursday.
