Canada Basketball Team Standings
Canada’s National Basketball team entered 2016 ranked eighth in the Americas and 26th overall in the World. With more and more Canucks making an NBA impact those standings are sure to rise.
Canada Basketball Team Record
Of all the key dates in Canada Basketball history, the quintessential date has to be December 21, 1891. That’s when Canadian Dr. James Naismith is credited with introducing hoops action to the world while he was teaching Physical Education at a school in Springfield, Massachusetts. Today, betting lines are available on contests that are played around the world all year long.
Heading into the new millennium, as an organization on the rise, Team Canada is still playing in the shadow of the powerhouse squads that represent the United States. That said, under the guidance of NBA great Steve Nash, Team Canada earned a Silver Medal at the 2015 Pan American Games. The Canucks also brought home a Bronze Medal from the 2015 FIBA Americas Championship.
Coaching and management are normally strengths for Team Canada. Talents like former Toronto Raptors head coach Jay Triano plus NBA legend and general manager Steve Nash have guided Team Canada recently. A lack of homegrown talent has always been an Achilles heel for the Canucks but that front is improving as rising NBA stars like Andrew Wiggins and Dwight Powell begin to emerge.
On the global stage, droughts continue for Team Canada as they failed to qualify for the Summer Olympics in 2004, 2008 and 2012. Success has also been fleeting during the FIBA World Cup as their best finishes to date were 6th overall during the 1978 and 1982 tournaments. No matter the tournament, Team Canada Basketball betting lines are always LIVE here at Online Betting Canada.
