Canadian 3×3 women’s team beats New Zealand, Poland, U.S. U24 to remain perfect on home soil

Canada remains perfect when playing on home soil in the 2023 FIBA Women’s 3X3 Basketball Series.

Twin sisters Michelle and Katherine Plouffe, of Edmonton, Paige Crozon, of Humboldt, Sask., and Kacie Bosch of Lethbridge, Alta. began play at the Montreal event on Saturday with 21-8 win over New Zealand.

The Canadians followed that up with another lopsided victory, a 21-9 drubbing of Poland before taking the court one more time in a 15-10 win over the U.S. U24 team.

Team Canada is now a perfect 13-0 at home this season, and will carry a 3-0 record in Pool A into their semifinal at 12:15 p.m. ET on Sunday. The final is set for 1:45 p.m. ET.

Canada previously went 5-0 when winning the Edmonton stop in July, repeating the feat in Quebec City last week.

All games from the Montreal event will be streamed live on, and on the free CBC Sports and CBC Gem apps.

Canada also won the stops in Poitiers, France, and Prague, and finished third in Orleans and Bordeaux, both in France. That’s good for fourth in the standings, behind China, Neftchi (Azerbaijan) and France.

The Women’s Series culminates with the Ulaanbaatar Final in Mongolia on Sept. 16-17.
