Canada’s Senior Men’s National Team remains 21st in the FIBA World Ranking Men, presented by Nike

MIES, Switzerland (December 9, 2020) - Canada’s Senior Men’s National Team remains ranked 21st in the FIBA World Ranking Men, presented by Nike, following the second window of the FIBA Continental Cup Qualifiers.

Canada was unable to participate in the November window of the FIBA AmeriCup 2021 Qualifiers due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic.

In February, Canada split a home-and-home series with the Dominican Republic and is currently 1-1 in the FIBA AmeriCup 2022 Qualifiers.

Due to the suspension of FIBA competitions, an adjustment was made to the algorithm for the rankings by extending the expiration date of past results by eight months in order to ensure that results from two Olympic Games are at all times included in the calculations which weigh data from the past eight years.

Canada remains committed to the FIBA AmeriCup 2022 qualification process and is in Group C along with Cuba, Dominican Republic and U.S. Virgin Islands.  National teams will return to action in February next year, with the last of three FIBA Continental Cup Qualifiers windows.
