CORDOBA, Argentina - Gonzaga University sophomore guard Pierre Marie Altidor-Cespedes and his Canadian teammates hope their fortunes improve in the U-21 World Championships.

Canada, making its inaugural appearance in the tournament, is 0-2 following a pair of weekend losses. The Canadians lost to Australia 88-71 on Saturday and fell to host Argentina 86-46 on Sunday.

Altidor-Cespedes, a product of Montreal, scored 7 points in Saturday's game, but hit just 3-of-11 shots from the field, including 1-for-5 from 3-point range, while playing 22 minutes. He also had four assists, a steal, a blocked shot and a rebound before fouling out.

Sunday against Argentina, Altidor-Cespedes played 15 minutes, went 0-for-2 from 3-point range and had two rebounds and a blocked shot.

Vlad Kuljanin of Toronto has paced Canada in scoring in both games, hitting 18 against Australia to tie for game-high honors and 10 against Argentina.

Canada's next game will be Tuesday against Greece.
