    It was a home game, too. FIBA ranks the top 82 teams. Malaysia is tied for no. 69 and Bahrain checks in at 75. Jamaica doesn't make the list.

    Jamaica, while not ranked very high at this point, is a team on the rise. Their roster has quit a few players with NBA experience, and benefits from players being born in Canada and the US to Jamaican parents. Pat Ewing Junior, Samardo Samuels, Jerome Jordan are a few of the names that will be with the team this year....and you may have heard of the guy who helped them qualify for the FIBA Americas championship, Roy Hibbert. Hibbert wont be with the team this year, but it does show they have some talent to draw on.

    That being said, Canada used these two games to try out different combinations of players and to settle on a final roster. We never saw what would be a top 8-9 man rotation, our top shooting guard, Carl English, did not play, and our veteran PG played very limited minutes in the second game only. The is a tune up tournament right before the Americas championship, and those games will be a better gauge of where this team will be.

    Hibbert wants to play for team USA in 2016 but FIBA rules make it unlikely.

    "unlikely" is a stretch, can't see it happening at all.
