(August 20, 2018 – HAMBURG, GERMANY) The Canadian Men’s Wheelchair Basketball Team placed second in pool A after an intense 83-71 loss to Iran on Monday at the 2018 World Championships in Hamburg.

The smaller Canadian side had trouble containing the Iran’s height, with the latter dominating in the paint and repeatedly converting on turnovers by Canada. After building up a 22-point lead it looked as though Iran would cruise to victory early, but Canada was resilient and clawed its way back into the game, coming within four points of tying it up late before Iran closed it out.
 
The Canadian men will next play in a crossover match on Tuesday, with the winner advancing to the quarter-finals. Their opponent and game time are to be announced. Meanwhile, the Canadian women return to action against the Netherlands at 12:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

Canadians can watch the games live on the Wheelchair Basketball Canada and Canadian Paralympic Team Facebook pages and through CBC Sports at cbcsports.ca.
