PRAGUE, Czech Republic – Colorado State sophomore guard Joe De Ciman played a key role throughout the 2013 FIBA U19 World Championship, helping his native Canada to a 4-5 record and a sixth-place finish in the 16-team tournament held June 27-July 7.

De Ciman, a product of Regina, Saskatchewan, grew stronger as the tournament wore on, overcoming a slow start in the team’s three preliminary-round contests (3.0 points, 1.7 rebounds per game), to average 6.2 points and 3.8 rebounds per contest over the final six games of the competition. 

Overall, De Ciman ranked fifth on the team averaging more than 20 minutes per game, while starting five contests. He ranked as the team’s No. 5 scorer, tallying 46 total points (5.1 per contest) and ranking among the squads top three-point threats by hitting 8-of-22 (.364) from long distance.

In Canada’s 95-57 rout of Iran on July 2, De Ciman posted his best offensive output of the tournament, going for 10 points, including a pair of three-pointers, and adding four rebounds.

In addition to his offensive prowess, De Ciman was a defensive force for the Canucks, notching five blocks (second on the team) and nine steals (tied for third).

He also pulled down 3.1 rebounds per game, and closed the tournament on a high note with back-to-back five-rebound contests in a triple-overtime victory over China (110-100) and a narrow loss to Spain (72-68) in the fifth-place game.

The sixth-place finish is the highest ever by a Canadian under-19 squad in the competition’s 34-year history.
