CMEDIA: With a 70-53 win over Colombia reportedly on Friday night., the Canadian women’s basketball team booked its spot in February’s FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament. 

Canada will next take on Puerto Rico on the final day of the tournament on Sunday.

Puerto Rico beat Venezuela 65-57 on Friday.

“What we have to do now is think that the next game against Puerto Rico is very important for us to keep building the team,”  Canada Head Coach Víctor Lapeña reportedly said. “It’s not done for me. We have to see tomorrow, we have to keep growing, keep doing things better and looking for February. We need to enjoy this moment and then we’ll reflect on what we need to do for February.”
