So far, so good.

Kelly Olynyk had a game-high 16 points, leading Canada's senior men's basketball team to a 74-68 win over Belgium Sunday to sweep the two-game series at the 2011 Jack Donohue Classic.

Carl English and Andy Rautins also scored in double figures, while Joel Anthony did the job on the defensive end, adding a game-high four blocks.

Canada also dominated in two other pivotal categories to secure the win, outrebounding Belgium on the glass with a 34-21 advantage, and also outscoring them 26-6 from the free throw line.

The Canadian team also beat Belgium in the opener 79-74 on Saturday. Rautins led the way in the win with a game-high 26 points.

The event served as the second-to-last tune-up for the Canadian team, who will head to Argentina at the end of the month for the FIBA Americas Championship hoping to clinch a berth into the 2012 Summer Games in London.

The Canadian team will train for another week on home soil before heading to Brazil for a three-games-in-three-days exhibition set starting Aug. 24.
