The first semifinal game at the Mall of Asia Arena pits Canada against New Zealand. 

The Canadians swept Group A after beating Turkey (77-69) and Senegal (58-55) while New Zealand finished second in Group B after beating the Philippines (89-80) and losing to France (59-66).

Cory Joseph has emerged as Canada's best performer in their two games after averaging team-highs 17 points and 3.5 assists. Helping the Toronto Raptors guard in the scoring chores are fellow NBA players Tyler Ennis and Tristan Thompson and former NCAA Big 12 Player of the Year Melvin Ejim. 

Head coach Jay Triano will also rely on brothers Philip and Thomas Scrubb and NBA player Anthony Bennett.

New Zealand, meanwhile, will be led by brothers Corey and Tai Jack Webster. Corey averaged 22 points in the group stage while Tai put up 17 points and a team-best 9.5 rebounds.

Forwards Thomas Abercrombie and Mika Vukona and center Isaac Fotu will also be counted upon by head coach Paul Henare in this do-or-die duel.

The winner of this game will play either France or Turkey in Sunday's final where a ticket to the Rio Olympics is at stake.

New Zealand defeated Canada 71-61 at the 2010 FIBA World Championship in their last meeting in a FIBA-sanctioned tournament.
