Canada – a team featuring Vikes men’s basketball head coach Craig Beaucamp who is assisting the national men’s team – defeated Argentina in overtime today at the Pan-Am Games in their tourney opener, 83-79.
Dani Sinclair, Vikes assistant and an assistant with Canada’s women’s team at the Pan-Ams returns home later this week after Canada placed sixth with a record of 1-3 . It’s an improvement on the 2007 Pan-Am Games showing of 7th place.
Congrats to our coaches who, along with Vikes student-athletes, are representing their country well!
