Wiggins and his Team Canada squad took down Uruguay 100-82 at the FIBA Americas tournament in Mexico City.
The Canucks are now riding a five-game winning streak, and have enjoyed an average margin victory of roughly 30 points.
Per the Toronto Sun:
Things will get quite a bit more challenging on Tuesday night, when the unbeaten hosts, supported by a rabid, likely sellout crowd, will be eager to pull off the upset. […] Andrew Wiggins again led the way with 18 points, including some highlight-reel dunks, Andrew Nicholson sprang to life with 15, Nik Stauskas notched 11 and four other Canadians cracked double-figures.
Uruguay, 0-5, yet still more competitive than some of Canada’s opponents so far, fought back after getting down by a 13-3 margin early, but Canada led by seven after one and it never got that close again. […] The lead had ballooned to 25 points at the half and to 34 through three.
“I think as the game went on I was pleased with how we were able to adapt to a different style of game than we’ve seen so far in this tournament,” head coach Jay Triano said. “I think that helps our growth as a team and gives these guys some experience as to what a very well executing team can do to us.”
