Kelly Olynyk scored 14 points and grabbed nine boards for Canada in Friday’s 97-61 victory over the Dominican Republic.
This tied Canada (4-1) and Dominican Republic (4-1) in the FIBA World Cup qualifiers. A Canadian win against the U.S. Virgin Islands on Monday would lock up first place in Group D. They would then likely play Brazil, Venezuela and Chile in the second round. Dillon Brooks, Melvin Ejim and teenage star R.J. Barrett also had 14 points apiece while Cory Joseph and Dwight Powell chipped in 11 points each. 2013’s No. 1 draft pick Anthony Bennett was the only Canadian player to not enter the game.
