Senior Women's National Team

The Senior Women's National Team defeated Argentina 67-65 in the FIBA Women's AmeriCup 2017 Final on Sunday August 13 to successfully defend their FIBA Americas title.

This is Canada's second consecutive FIBA Women's AmeriCup (formerly FIBA Americas Championship for Women) title after defeating Cuba 82-66 in Edmonton back in 2015. Canada also previously won gold at the 1995 American Olympic Qualifying Tournament Tournament for Women.

Nirra Fields was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player and was selected to the All-Star Five along with Canada's captain Miranda Ayim.  

Canada also clinched a berth in the FIBA Women's Basketball World Cup 2018 in Spain with a 84-45 victory over Brazil in the tournament's semifinals.
