Dominican Republic overpowers Canada at FIBA Americas

James Feldeine led the Dominican Republic (4-2) with 20 points.

Canada jumped out to a quick start with a 28-18 advantage after the first quarter.

That lead evaporated in the second though, as the Canadians were outplayed by the Dominican Republic. The Carribbean nation took a 45-44 lead going into halftime despite Nicholson scoring 15 points in 17 minutes of the first half.

“We knew that we had a mismatch at the four spot, and we thought that we could get (Nicholson) the basketball,” said Triano. “We saw last night (in Canada’s loss to Venezuala) that if he doesn’t score it’s going to be tough for us to score points. We only had 59 points. We knew we needed to get him the ball.”
