Canada and France clash in FIBA Women's World Olympic Qualifying Tournament.
Canada was merciless in its opening game in the FIBA Women's World Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Ankara. And the North Americans are looking to doing the same against France in their Group D showdown tonight.
The Canadians rolled past Mali 89-23 yesterday. They built a 22-6 lead after 10 minutes and held the Africans to only four points in the second and third quarters.
Courtnay Pilypaitis topscored for Canada with 15 points and made 10 assists. Kimberley Smith added 11 points and eight rebounds while Miranda Joy Ayim had 10 points.
Out to stop the Canadians is France, which will see action in its first game. Out to lead the French are Emilie Gomis and Isabelle Yacoubou.
