    CIV - FIBA Africa name Ivory Coast as host of 2011 FIBA Africa Championship for Men

    ABIDJAN (2011 FIBA Africa Championship for Men) - Ivory Coast has been officially named as hosts the 26th edition of 2011 FIBA Africa Championship for men (Afrobasket 2011).

    The decision was taken during the extraordinary meeting of the Executive Committee of FIBA Africa, held on 17th March 2010 in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.

    Three countries - Ivory Coast, Madagascar and Nigeria - applied to host the Afrobasket 2011 and the decision to hand the hosting right to Ivory Coast was reached after the fourth meeting of the Executive Committee of Africa's continental federation in which the committee went through the bidding files of each of the three countries.

    With the awarding of the 2011 edition of the biggest basketball showpiece in Africa to Ivory Coast, next year's Championship will be the second time the FIBA Africa Zone-III nation plays host to the gathering of Africa stars, having staged the 13th edition of the competition in 1985.

    A deadline has been fixed for the end of June 2010 for the 2009 runner-up to start the building works of its new playing arena and the launching of the activities relating to the event.

    Should the deadline not be reached or the hosting compromised in any way, the right to stage the Championship will be forfeited to Madagascar, who staged the 2009 edition of the Women Championship.

    Cape Verde will not count on Rodrigo Mascarenhas, Marito and Jefferson Gomes for the qualifiers. The players claim they were contacted too late by the federation, something which did not happen with other players.

    Angola could organise the championship if Ivory Coast fails to meet deadlines.

    Eric Banda expresses interest to play for the Zimbabwe NT:

    Harare — FORMER JBC star player Eric Banda, now plying his trade across the border in Mozambique at Costa do Sol, is relishing a call to the senior men' national team when the qualifiers for the All Africa Games begin.

    Banda is looking forward to be part of the national team that will compete during the All Africa Games set for Mozambique next year.

    He hopes to use what he has learnt in Mozambique in the national team and add value during the qualifying matches.


    Besides the qualifiers for the All Africa Games, there are qualifiers for the Africa Cup of Nations.

    These qualifying matches will run concurrently

    Banda has won various medals since his school days at Embakwe High School in Plumtree and Milton High in Bulawayo.

    The Bulawayo star took his basketball career to another level, playing in the national league before his move to Mozambique last year.

    His first club was Giants Basketball Club in Bulawayo, where he won seven league titles.

    From Giants, Banda switched base and joined Harare based side JBC under the guidance of Addison Chiware.

    Banda won nine Most Valuable Player (MVP) awards and has been capped 18 times in the national team.

    In his first season in the Mozambican league, which is sponsored by Vodacom, Banda won the championship trophy with Maxaquene and was voted the league' MVP.

    After a stint with Maxaquene, Banda this season joined Costa do Sol.

    Last season he averaged 19 points, 13 rebounds, two blocks and 14 assists per game.

    The former JBC kingpin is now eyeing a move to the United States of America.

    Banda feels he has the capacity to play in the NBA.

    The Mozambican basketball league runs from August to December and has 10 teams.

    Banda is not the only foreigner at Costa do Sol as there is also a Congolese player in the team.

    "At the end of last season the league management committee changed rules governing the foreign quota system.

    "The new rule was that only two foreigners can be registered by a club.

    "At Maxaquene we were three foreigners, including two Americans, and I was approached by Costa do Sol and made the switch.

    Since my move to the Mozambican league, my performance has vastly improved and there is still room for improvement.

    "In the Mozambican league the game is more technical and funding is abundant as sponsors scramble to sponsor teams.

    "Some of the sponsors include airline, banks and cellphone companies.

    "Our club is sponsored by a cellular company called MCell and a construction company owned by a Portuguese," Banda said.


    Banda said the Mozambique national team will report for camp next week to start preparations for the Africa Cup of Nations.

    Mozambique will not be taking part in the All Africa Games qualifiers, as they are the host country.

    Some of the nations that will battle during the Africa Cup of Nations Cup include Zimbabwe, Zambia, South Africa, Malawi, Namibia, Swaziland and Botswana.

    Banda also has a passion for football when he is not on the basketball court.

    He played for Highlanders juniors in primary school.

    In Mozambique, Banda follows the Costa do Sol soccer team coached by Zimbabwean David "Yogi" Mandigora, the former Dynamos mentor.

In a book, they write they find a skeleton of [an] eagle and there is no fish. It means that the fish beat him and killed him, but he didn't let go." -- Donatas Motiejunas

    Could the Congo be a team on the rise in Africa, with players like Ibaka and Eyenga in the NBA?

    Well for Ibaka looks like he's much more inclined to play for Spain.

    Ibaka played for the Republic of Congo's junior-national team 2006 in the African Champs in South Africa, so Spain needs to bribe their federation to make him available for their senior's national team.
    Eyenga is not from the same country as Ibaka. A lot of people getting confused with "Congo".
    There are two nations.
    Republic of Congo (Brazzaville) and Democratic Rep. of Congo.

    Eyenga is from the Dem Rep of Congo like Mutombo, Didier Mbenga (who opted to play for Belgium), Wenbos Mukubu (Italy),Boris Meno (France), Moses Ehambe (Spain) Kabeya Kabongo (St.Peters USA), Menji Mundadi (Lithuania), Luse Mundadi (Robert Morris,USA),Mohamed Ntumba (Southern Indiana,USA), Mutombo Yombo (Brewton-Parker,USA) Gege Kizunbanata (Tunisia) and Freddy Mali (Yemen).

    Congo-Brazzavile has Ibaka, Herve Assoua (Morocco),Max Kougere (France - But he opted to play for the Central African Republic), Giovan Oniangue (France), Tanguy Ngombo (Qatar - Plays for Qatar instead) and Nobel Boungou-Colo (France).
