BRUSSELS — Canada's women's basketball team continued an exhibition tour with a 68-64 loss to host Belgium on Saturday.

Tied 62-62 with under a minute to play, Belgium took the lead for good on a clutch three-pointer with just 35 seconds to play.

Kayla Alexander led Canada with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Sami Hill and Miranda Ayim had nine points apiece, while Cassandra Brown added eight points.

Antonia Delaere led Belgium with 14 points.
