LEBANON 81, CANADA 71 - Canada loses jersey numbers and opening game at the FIBA Worlds

Canada dropped their opening game at the Turkey FIBA World Championships to Lebanon 81-71.  It was a disappointing loss for the Canucks as Lebanon outscored Canada 23-14 in the final quarter.  Even more embarrassing was the fact that some of the numbers on team Canada's jerseys were peeled off during the game.
