    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.

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

    Congrats to Tunisia
    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.

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

    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.

    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.
    man that is a tough one for the africa teams

    To build the basketball infrastructure of Africa, national programs need better facilities and money. The NBA and FIBA are forced to make tough funding decisions as a result. Andrew Feinstein reports from Madagascar.

    Nice read!

    Congrats to Tunisia on winning the 2011 Afrobasket!!

    I'm really happy for them not only because they were able to dethrone Angola and provide us with a new winner since 1997 but also since I lived there for 3 years of my life
