There are pros and cons to having one of the deepest pools of basketball talent in the world. And Canada Basketball is going to have a tough time choosing a 12-man roster next summer.
The Canadians became the first team from the Americas to clinch a spot in the upcoming FIBA World Cup, doing so on home soil with a 38-point win over Venezuela in Edmonton.

After losing to the Olympic silver-medalists in February, Canada proved they have come a long way in a short period of time under new head coach Victor Lapena.
