Canada falls in U-19 quarterfinals

Two days after stunning the United States to finish undefeated in round robin play, Canada's dreams of a gold medal in the FIBA U-19 World Championships ended with a loss to Spain in the quarterfinals on Friday.

Astou Ndour had 19 points, eight rebounds and five blocks to lead three Spanish players in double figures and Canada shot just 28 percent from the field in the 69-55 win by Spain which moves onto the semifinals to play either Japan or Australia.

In the other half of the bracket, the U.S. plays France at 6:45 p.m. followed by the Brazil/Russia game.

Nirra Fields, a rising senior at Oak Hill Academy in Virginia, led Canada with 14 points.
