    It seems list changed slightly according to
    http://www.africabasket.com/Senegal/...?NewsID=238125

    The Lions of Senegal won't be able to count on the services of Antoine Mendy (198-F-83) as their basketball federation didn't manage to organize a insurance for the player.

    Article says only 11 players flew to Madagascar. It is not clear if they can add 12th player so late.

    Other thing is
    Instead of Ousmane Gueye now Malick Badiane is listed in roster (not Pape Badiane that played for France and basketball citizenship was problematic)

    This seems to be final 11-men Senegalese roster
    Thierno Niang
    Mamadou Ndoye
    Xane D'Almeida
    Mouhammad Faye
    Elhadji Ndiaye
    Maleye NDoye
    Pape Thiendou Diasse
    Papa Ndiaga Dia
    Malick Badiane
    Babacar Toure
    Boubacar Coly

    Gorgui Dieng is among the top shot blockers in the NCAA today. In just three years, Dieng under Louisville and Rick Pitino, has not only matured physically, elevated his skills but also have improved his English.

    Dieng and the Cardinals will face Kentucky lead by Anthony Davis Jr. this Saturday in the NCAA Final Four in New Orleans. Both have drawn comparison over the season. Both disrupts the opposition's defense. Dieng's wingspan is 7-4 while Davis has 7-5 wingspan. Davis has 175 blocked shots; Dieng has 124.

    Dieng had 7 blocks against West regional semifinal win over Michigan State.

    What is the update in regards with this?
    http://www.lesoleil.sn/index.php?opt...sket&Itemid=85

    If my French has not been shot to obilivion, I reckon the article mentioned that Senegal could be replaced by Ivory Coast in the World Cup if certain things are not ironed out?

    EDIT:

    Another one: http://www.africatopsports.com/2014/...doute-forfait/

    Senegal is racing against time to raise that amount and has appealed to the government.

    What a travesty if Senegal is unable to participate in the World Cup due to financial problems. Any world championship in any sport should feature the best teams from every region, and Senegal definitely proved last summer they're among Africa's elite teams. If they're unable to go, then either the Ivory Coast or Nigeria should receive strong consideration for replacing them.

    I agree. Senegal earned their berth despite their implied anomaly in the article. If somehow Senegal happens to participate and Nigeria is awarded a wildcard, good exposure for Africa's teams.

    Considering the fact that the officials in charge of the Senegalese Basketball Federation have complied with past disciplinary sanctions imposed by FIBA and have agreed to a clear road map for the complete re-organisation of the national federation, FIBA's Central Board has accepted to lift the ban imposed on the Senegalese national team and allow it to take part the FIBA Basketball World Cup.
