Vernon’s Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe played 15 minutes, finishing with two points and three rebounds Monday.

Canada brushed back Puerto Rico 94-57 in their opener Sunday night. Raincock-Ekunwe chipped in six points and three rebounds in 17 minutes.

Canada took on the Dominican Republic Tuesday night.

Canada battles the defending champion Cuba team tomorrow night at 6:30 p.m.
