Delfino's 26 carries Argentines past Canada

Ex-Raptor Carlos Delfino scored 26 points and Argentina pulled away for a 79-64 win in the first round of Efes Pilsen World Cup in Turkey.  Canada led by 6 at halftime and trailed by only 2 after three quarters but Argentina, led by Delfino, 6'10" Luis Scola and 6'7" Andreas Nocioni pulled away for the comfortable win.  Jevohn Shepherd and Denham Brown led Canada offensively on the day that Canada found out for certain that they would be without Matt Bonner for the tournament who was denied quick citizenship.  Canada meets the host Turks, with another ex-Raptor Hedo Turkoglu, tomorrow on Day 2 of this warm-up tournament.
