National basketball team arrives in Victoria


WATCH: The Canadian Men’s National basketball team made the trip to Victoria on Saturday, ahead of their Pacific Rim Classic showdown against China at the Save On Foods Memorial Centre.

Some of the best players in the country practiced at Belmont Secondary School on Saturday evening, with some NBA talent and stars of tomorrow shooting hoops in the Westshore.

Among the players in red, R.J. Barrett, the 18-year-old phenom is set to attend Duke University this fall, and is projected to be one of the top picks in next year’s NBA draft.

Canada is coming off a convincing win over China on Friday, and will look to keep the momentum rolling on Sunday in Victoria, as the team gears up for it’s World Cup Qualifying match against the Dominican Republic this upcoming Friday in Toronto.
