HAMBURG, Germany -- Canada took advantage of late fouls by Lithuania to win the bronze medal 83-81 at the FIBA under-17 men's world basketball championship Sunday.

Down 81-77 with one minute left in the fourth quarter, Olivier Hanlan scored a three-pointer for Canada and was fouled on the next possession with 13.7 seconds left.

Hanlan, who led his team with 15 points, hit both shots to give Canada a one-point lead, and when Lithuania fouled Dyshawn Pierre he added one more from the line to seal the victory.

"This is a huge win for our country, this is a huge win for these kids," said Canada head coach Roy Rana.

"A lot of them gave up two summers, they worked extremely hard from day one. It's a special moment for Canadian basketball and I am hoping to see many of these players continue to represent our country for many years to come and hopefully they will continue with success.

"We are going to enjoy this moment."

In the gold-medal match, United States beat Poland 111-80 to win the championship.

Lithuania got the better start, quickly opening up an 11 point lead.

Canada, which once again had to come along without forward Anthony Bennett, went 4-of-8 from deep and trailed 43-40 going into the half.

A three-point shot from Kevin Pangos (13 points, five assists) gave Canada the 68-67 lead at the 6:16 mark of the fourth quarter.

Lithuania bounced back, leading to the tight finish.
