Basketball: Canadian junior women finish fourth at worlds

There are some things a team can't do and expect to win. Star forward Natalie Achonwa was limited to 15 minutes due to a hip injury and Canada lost 58-51 to Argentina in the bronze medal game at the FIBA U19 World Championship for Women.

Kayla Alexander had a massive 18-point, 14-rebound effort. No doubt everyone would have liked a closer outcome vs. the eventual champion U.S. (Spain won silver) and a win over Argentina. Nevertheless, this represents some real momentum for the women's game in Canada.

A tip of the cap is due to Western's Jenny Vaughan, Laval's Elyse Jobin and Saint Mary's Justine Colley for representing their country and Canadian Interuniversity Sport.
