Canada comes back to win by 3 vs. Australia

Clearly I got the times incorrect as the result is in and Canada has defeated a pesky Australian team 81-78 as 6’5″ R.J. Barrett rescued the Canadians who were down 2 with about a minute left to play before Barrett hit a pair of free throws and then later had the go-ahead dunk with about 30 seconds remaining.  Canada escapes with the win.  More later.  6’9″ Simi Shittu had 22 points and 12 rebounds to lead Canada while Barrett finished with 19 points in 24 minutes.  Stats
