Canada race past Tunisia for second win

HERAKLION (2015 FIBA U19 World Championship) - Canada rested their top stars but still raced past Tunisia93-36, to improve to 2-0 in Group C at the 2015 FIBA U19 World Championship. Jalen Poyser and Corey Johnson combined for 43 points in the win while Dillon Brooks and Justin Jackson both did not play and Christopher Egi played seven minutes. 

Turning Point: Canada opened the game with the first 13 points and never looked back, leading by as many as 58.

Stats Don't Lie: Canada held Tunisia to just 19 percent shooting from the field while out-rebounding the Africans 58-28 and scoring 40 points in the paint compared to just 14 for Tunisia.

Game Hero: While Johnson nailed seven three-pointers for his 21 points, Poyser was the all-around leader for Canada with 22 points, eight rebounds, two steals and one assist. 

The Bottom Line: Canada's leaders Brooks and Jackson both will have a second full day to rest before the showdown with Italy for first place in Group C. Tunisia have lost their two games by a combined 84 points and now the Africans look for a closer game against Australia.
