The Canadian women’s 3×3 basketball team won silver at the World Cup

ANTWERP, BELGIUM – The Canadian women’s basketball team 3×3 won a silver medal at the FIBA ​​2022 World Championships on Sunday after losing to France at 16:13.

Michelle Plouffe scored seven points, four rebounds and five blocks for Canada. Her sister Katherine Plouffe scored six points and seven rebounds.

“Team Canada is a really great team,” said Marie-Eve Paget of France. “You’re not in the final unless you’re a great team. We played against them in a friendly match before the World Cup and we lost twice, so this is revenge.”

Hortense Limouzin scored on the lost jumper and gave France a three-point lead with less than a minute of play, but Katherine Plouffe answered and turned it into a two-point match.

Michelle Plouffe diverted the ball beyond the French player’s lead to win Canada, which remained 17.2 seconds. However, the Canadians failed to score as they continued to hold the ball.

Paget was fouled and sealed France’s victory on the line for 3.1 seconds.

For France, it was the first gold medal at the event and the first silver medal for the Canadians, who defeated Lithuania 16:14 in the semifinals that day.
