Team Canada’s Growth Encourages Triano
The final score didn’t matter much, if at all.
What was important Thursday night was that Canada’s senior men’s squad was finally back on the court and the long-awaited “golden era” is underway.
Yes, Canada beat Jamaica 81-72 in the opener of the two-game Jack Donahue International Classic, but that was of little importance.
“We needed to play a game, we’ve been playing against ourselves in practice every day, and to find out where we are, it was good, I thought as the game progressed we got better so that’s a good sign,” said head coach Jay Triano, who started his second tenure in charge with a win.
