Women's basketball squeaks

CBC SPORTS ONLINE - Canada had some rough goings in
women's basketball in Sydney, but they finished off strong squeaking by Brazil 61-60 on
Sunday in round robin play.
Led by Stacey Dales' 16 points, Canada came back from a
51-36 deficit late in the game to upset the Brazilians by one point.
Janeth Arcain led opponents with a game high 19 points.
Her teammates Claudia Neves and Crisitina Helen Luz had 11 and 10 points, respectively.
Canada had a balanced attack with seven players scoring

medal rounds based on their points for and against.
