    Angola and Nigeria will participate in Olympic qualifying tournament

    But there will be 4 European teams (probably 4 of France, Germany, Lithuania, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Turkey), also probably Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and New Zealand = zero chances for any African or Asian teams to finish in top 3 at that tournament.

    Default Out of Africa

    Too bad Sudan and DR Congo were not able to take part in this tournament. These countries could have been competitive if only they were able to keep the citizenship of some of their prized players.

    Imagine Sudan being led by Luol Deng, Duany Duany, Kueth Duany, Deng Gai and Longar Longar.

    Congo, meanwhile, could have been led by DJ Mbenga and Serge Ibaka, who now play for Belgium and Spain, respectively.

    He must've confused DR of Congo (formerly Zaire) with the Repuplic of Congo, where Ibaka was born.

    He was dismissed after QF I think.

    Anyway, his last experiences have always been a mess. Maybe this time, he is not the only one to blame, since i think many people in Angolan coaches, etc... may not have been too happy to see a foreign coach, while it is quite a nice place to have in African basketball to coach Angola, but his apparently very authoritarian personnality may not have helped.

    It was the same last time he coached France, although he had a very tough situation, the players really could not stand him and his decisions.

    Now I understand why Cipriano was left out due to disciplinary issues

    I think Edwin Mbanda is actually from Rwanda.

    It didn't matter in the opening round:

    Rwanda 98-60 Burundi
    Kenya 76-61 Uganda
    I am Edwin Mbanda and I am an American Born Rwandan both of my parents are from Rwanda.
