Today we have the Cadet's making it three in a row against Korea, some high school news and more in this edition of Canadian Content ...
First of all, a big congrats to the Cadet Team in Hamburg for handily taking care of Korea 95-74 in the first game today. They are now 3-1 going into their match up with Group B's top team Poland who needed overtime to finish their come from behind run to beat Spain 88-82 (who the Cadets beat by seven a few days ago in regulation may I add). The game will tip off at 4pm with no game feed but if you're up early, you can follow one of our colleagues, Barry Hayes from Hoop Stars Canada, at his Twitter feed @hoopstarscanada for a play-by-play. Bear in mind that Anthony Bennett was not in this game versus Korea and his status for the game against Poland is still a question mark.
