    I wondered about that particular pick too. Diop rebounded well,thats all.
    Funny thing is, that Africabasket.com posted All-Star teams and i know the guy who compiled them probably did not even care to watch the games.

    picking Diop into All star lineup, it's a joke right?
    the guy was hardly the best C in Senegal's team let alone the whole championship..

    The All Star Five was selected by journalists and experts of the tournament.

    Top scorer of the tournament was Romain Sato from the Central African Republic, best rebounder was Robert Thomson from Rwanda, and best three point shooter was Carlos Morais from Angola.

    A note to say Angola became champion using only players from the domestic championship. Quite an achievement.

    He is a very good player but not a pure Center that can defend bigger players, this team needs a real center to be able to get to the higher level of competition they almost lost to Tunisia if it wasn't for their experience I see they are going down if they continue the same way

    Congrats to Angola, even though it's expected doesn't make their domination any less impressive.

    Also congrats to Tunisia on their first ever World Championship appearance.

    Angola is starting to lift off. The game was pretty much even until the start of the second half. Cipriano is carrying the Angolans with his penetrations.

    Edit: unbelievable run for Ivory Coast, they are now within 2

    These last two Afrobasket's for sure.

    It will be the second consecutive Afrobasket that either Egypt or Senegal hasn't finished in the top-three.

    From 1967 - 2005... that's twenty straight Afrobaskets with Egypt or Senegal in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place!

    strength, athleticism of african players etc.
    Angola is the same, they lack height, athleticism etc. but their discipline and tactical knowledge is what is bringing them medals..
    ah, ok , got it ! I thought they have some naturalized players like their arab brothers in Asia

    Angola lacks height but they have plenty of athleticism IMO, with the undersized Gomes and Mingas doing a great job inside in 2006.
