ST. JOHN'S, N.L. —

Team Canada may have already secured its berth in the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup, but the men’s national team can still improve on its seeding the tournament in China late this summer.

Basketball Canada’s squad, led by former NBA centre Joel Anthony, will attempt to do just that this week in a pair of Americas qualifying games at Mile One Centre in St. John’s.

The team meets Chile — already eliminated from qualifying — on Thursday evening at 7 p.m. and welcomes Venezuela to town for a 4 p.m. matchup this coming Sunday. 

We’ve got four pair of tickets to give away — two to each contest — and all you have to do is answer an easy trivia question and submit your email address.

Good luck!
