Canada had 8-point deficit before the second half and they had to improve. They were slightly better in Q3 (17-15), but they needed a way more against tough Brazilians. Both teams were good offensively in the last period, which once again belonged to Canada 25-24, but that was not enough for any better than 78-83 loss. The Semifinals are scheduled for Tuesday. As mentioned above, Brazill will meet Argentina, while Canada will play against USA.
