Veteran Nikki Johnson of Niagara Falls was Team Canada’s third best shooter Friday as Canada lost its third senior women’s exhibition basketball game to the Czech Republic.
Johnson, 31, a 5-11 forward, who plays with the professional German club B.G. Dorsten, had six points for the Canucks, who lost 86-51. Johnson also had six points in the second game of the series, a 64-46 setback.
Canada lost the opener 86-56.
The Canadians now return home for a brief break before flying to Sao Paulo, Brazil for the Sept. 12-23 world championship. Canada is in Pool C with Senegal, Lithuania, and Australia.
