The tournament started on Friday, July 29th, with the Canadian men’s 3-on-3 team dropping their first game to Australia, 13 to 11.
Colin Higgins scored seven points and six rebounds, while Bo Hedges added three points and two rebounds to the team’s total.

“Short turn around, they’re fast games, and it’s a fast tournament as well, so we’ve got to get going.”
