Canada overwhelmed Mexico at the start of the Women's AmeriCup

The Canadian Basketball Team beat Mexico this Sunday in a Group A match that marked the opening of the 2019 Women's AmeriCup tournament to be held in San Juan to determine which teams will be present at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

The start of the competition, which will be held until the 29th at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum in San Juan, was a show of strength by the Canadian squad that had no opposition from a Mexico team, which did what it could to endure the gale that was upon him.

Jamie Scott and Kayla Alexander, with 21 and 18 points, respectively, were the best scorers for Canada, while Mexico's Jacqueline Luna-Castro had 12 points.

The physical difference between the two teams was especially noticeable in the rebounds, with 18 for Mexico compared to 46 for Canada, a domain in the hoops that translated into the final score. Canada cemented their victory in the first two quarters, when they escaped on the scoreboard with a great superiority against which the Mexicans could do little.

The San Juan competition will serve for the top 8 finishers to advance to a second tournament, divided into two groups of four, to be held in November, an event for which the venue is not yet known.

From that November competition, from each of the groups of four, there will be 2 teams that will go to the world pre-Olympic to be held in February, the last obstacle to being in Tokyo 2020.
