Canada has not given up in its quest to make next year's FIBA World Cup in Spain.

Canada Basketball president and CEO Wayne Parrish confirmed to QMI Agency Thursday that a bid has been submitted to FIBA for one of four wild card spots available for teams that failed to qualify for the second-biggest basketball tournament after the Olympics.
