GRANADA, Spain - Brady Heslip scored 22 points and Canada's men's basketball team ended its 11-game exhibition tour of Europe with a 89-65 victory over Angola on Tuesday.

Andrew Nicholson added 21 points and 10 rebounds, for Canada while Cory Joseph also recorded a double-double with 12 points, 11 assists and three rebounds.

Joaquim Gomes scored 21 points for Angola, which is ranked 15th in the world and will participate in the upcoming FIBA World Cup.

"What a great way to finish off our tour," Canada coach Jay Triano said. "We played very well both offensively and defensively keeping the African champions frustrated. Our players grew, competed, learned the international game, and kept getting better as our tour went on.

"I'm really pleased with the fact that we competed with some very good teams. We are still a very young international team and these 11 games were very helpful in our development."

Canada finished the tour with a 5-6 record.
