that scoresheet for angola-macao is not pretty. first half, angola was up 74-17. they then proceeded to outscore them in the second half 72-17!:eek:
for angola, everyone except Olimpio Cipriano (2 pts in 10 min), Carlos Almeida (4 in 10 min), and Felipe Abraao (starter, 2 pts in 17 min) hit double figures in points (led by Carlos Morais' 22). No one hit double figures for Macau, had 2 players hit 8. Here were the points for the starters:
Angola: 22, 14, 17, 11, 2 = 66
Macau: 6, 0, 6, 8, 8 = 28

Benches: Angola 80 pts, Macau 6 (2, 2, 2, 0, 0)
Here (http://www.lisboa2009.org/images/stories/pdf_resultados/bsqmANGxMAC.pdf) is the scoresheet. All of them can be found on the website lisboa2009.org. Just go to basquetbol then scroll down and click the game u want to see.

I am not impressed with the Games website.

May I ask why? I didnt think it was so bad. I was actually impressed to find scoresheets.

Same here, it's pretty good for Portuguese standards (regarding basketball especially).

Cape Verde surprised Portugal: 67-66. Portugal started very bad and at half-time we were losting by 12...:eek:
At the other semi-final, Angola beat Brasil by 9 (80-71).
So, we have a final between Angola and Cape Verde...

Angola won the gold medal after a win over Cape Verde, 106 to 64...:eek:
Don't think that is the true difference between the two sides. Cape Verde hasn't the same solutions on the bench which Angola has, but they have a really overrated player: Jeffer Xavier! He scored 16 points on 1st quarter and then Angola's coach Luís Magalhães decided make a full court double-team on Jeffer. He rarely hadn't the ball on offense and Cape Verde's offense is Jeffer's dependent. From then on, Angola was always adding up points... Fast break, a lot of dunks... Thypical african game style, fantastic!!!

Portugal guaranteed the bronze medal after a win over Brazil, 95 to 71...

They just started posting statistics partway through the tournament, earlier they just posted the rosters, the halftime score, and the final score. Some of the games still have no stats.

ANG/CPV/POR/BRA – Angola clinch title in Portugal with win over Cape Verde

LISBON (AfroBasket 2009) - Nine-time African champions Angola won their showdown with Cape Verde 106-64 to clinch the title of 2nd Lusophone Games in Almada, Portugal.

Armando Costa and Carlos Morais scored 18 and 19 points, respectively, for the winners who are coming into form at just the right time with the AfroBasket tipping off at the beginning of August in Libya.

The most valuable player of AfroBasket 2007, Joaquim Gomes, poured in 12 points and grabbed 16 rebounds – a performance that earned him the honor of the MVP of the final.

“Angola played a good game and we lacked some organization,” Cape Verde captain Rodrigo Mascarenhas said to FIBA.com.

Former Providence College guard Jeff Xavier led Cape Verde with 19 points but that was not enough to guide his team to the upset.

Cape Verde’s recently appointed coach, Nigerian Alex Nwora, couldn’t be at the final after making an emergency trip home. He will rejoin the team next Wednesday in Rio Maior, Portugal.

Cape Verde, who captured bronze in the African Championship 2007, surprisingly beat Portugal 67-66 in the Semi-Final.

Portugal started the event as defending champions, having claimed the title three years ago in Macao.

The Portuguese overcame Brazil 95-71 to claim the bronze this year.

Cape Verde are also preparing for the AfroBasket.
