After defeating Belgium yesterday, San Antonio Spurs draftee Cory Joseph and Canada returned to action Sunday in the final match of the 2011 Jack Donohue International classic by defeating Belgium 74 to 67.
Joseph finished with three points, 1-of-3 shooting, 0-for-2 from three point range, one rebound, one assist, and one turnover in 20 minutes of action. Saturday Joseph had four turnovers, it was a different story on Sunday.
At halftime Canada led 39 to 26 as Joseph played eight minutes but didn’t attempt a shot in the time period.
Joseph was reinserted into the game with four minutes remaining in the third quarter. He took and missed one three pointer from the left sideline. Canada went into the fourth quarter leading 54 to 46.
Joseph started the fourth quarter and was fouled coming off of a screen. His speed again was very noticeable as his defender had trouble getting away from him on offense and covering him on defense.no comments
