2023 Forum Update!

Dear IBN community,

As you've realized, we have updated the forum.
it's been 10 years since the previous upgrade, so it's likely we've lost some styles and functionality.

could you please share the issues you've encountered, as well as your thoughts and suggestions here:

  • Cape Verde basketball

    The Cape Verdian basketball federation is seeking to hire a foreign coach for the national team. The federation's president is in the USA trying to hire a coach whose name wasn't revelead, but who knows very well Cape Verdian players, especially those playing in the US (like NBA's Ryan Gomes).
    If this hiring fails, the most probable candidate is former NT coach Emanuel Trovoada who conquered bronze in Afrobasket 2007. The team is looking forward to repeat the deed again in Afrobasket 2009.

      I suppose you could contact the Cape Verdian federation: http://www.invento.pt/fcbb_cv/index....d=24&Itemid=38
      Weird that they don't have an email address.

        The new NT coach will be Cameroonian Lazare Adingono. Adingono led the Cameroon to a surprising silver medal in Afrobasket two years ago and was assistant coach at Canisius College until the beginning of April.

              National league final

              A very short and fast played league it seems. Seven Stars defeated Pantera Negra 61-49 in the final to claim the title.

                !! The league lasted for like less than 2 weeks .
                It's good at least they have a league and their NT has greatly developed especially due to their players abroad in the States.

                  Yeah, their national team could be very strong if all the players in the US would join.

                    Just being curious: do Cape Verdean players play in Portuguese clubs as national players? Because that could benefit its NT greatly

                          Cape Verde ends Afrobasket participation very far from the initial goals.

                          The deception of the tournament by far.

                              Cipriano Cut from Poznan - Oct 22, 2009 (by Pedro Gomes)

                              According to team website, Cape Verdean national team players, Pedro Cipriano (206-F-83, college: Southern), Played his last game for Poznan, against Anwil Wloclawek, a total of 3 games. The Cape Verdian did not impress the coaching staff, during the two-week trial period, and the club decided not sign him with the seasonal contract.

                              'Along with the president and director of sports, we have decided to part ways with Pedro Cipriano. He helped us in the system, during training, but I thought that his offensive capabilities are a bit limited as a big man. He is a very good person, and I wish him all the best for further career '- explains coach Kijewski.
