Canada ends FIBA World Cup with loss to Germany, but clinches spot in second-chance Olympic qualifying tournament

It wasn't the World Cup performance Canada had envisioned. The Canadian men's basketball team finished 21st at the FIBA World Cup after a 82-76 loss to Germany. Canada had been poised for a breakout season, and there's been talk of a podium performance in China.

Canada will have another shot to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, in a last-chance tournament next summer.
