    Angola, Madagascar, Tunisia (!?) and Morocco are interested to jump in, if the Ivory Coast fails to a) build a 8.000 seat stadium and b) a secure and stable situation within the country.

    Default Afrobasket men 2011: Côte d'Ivoire still at the helm

    Moise Kore, president of the Ivorian Basketball Federation insisted that the Ivory Coast has not lost the hosting rights for Afrobasket 2011 which is scheduled in August 2011.

    It is said on the article:

    Afrobasket men 2011: Côte d'Ivoire still at the helm
    Côte d'Ivoire remains the host of the male Afrobasket 2011. This assurance was given by Moise Kore, president of the Ivorian Basketball Federation (Fibbi) last Saturday at a news conference.

    Some languages are quick to rush into the tabloids announcing the withdrawal of Côte d'Ivoire from the organization of Afrobasket 2011 scheduled to be held in August. "We were not withdrawn. I talked with the secretary general of FIBA Africa on the phone. He and his staff are for maintaining the competition in Côte d'Ivoire. Given the country's current situation, we were given time to discuss with authorities how this will be a reality, "replied bluntly the President of the Ivorian basketball Federation, Moise Kore. It was during a press conference for this purpose at the headquarters of the Fibbi Saturday, January 29. Continuing in his oratory, Moise Kore, has even reassured the audience that the Fibbi has the full support of government authorities. Including the Minister of Sports, Franck Guei, who according to the head of the ball of the basket in Côte d'Ivoire is ostensibly committed to do everything possible to the actual organization of the competition.

    "Currently he (Editor's note: the minister) is in discussion with his fellow minister of finance to start the rehabilitation of the Sports Palace. And at our level, we are currently reviewing our project so we can be in time and allow competition to be held in Abidjan. We have until February 15 to meet with our authorities and go see the FIBA Africa to say whether or not the organization of Afrobasket is still possible in our country, "said President of Fibbi. According to him, after the failure of the first plan due to the post-election crisis, the Ivorian governing body of basketball has resorted to a plan B to allow delivery of infrastructure within the allotted time.

    This is the rehabilitation of the Sports Palace in Treichville and construction of an adjoining room.

    It should be noted that during the evaluation meeting with FIBA Africa in Bamako, Mali, on January 23, the special envoy of Fibbi, Florent Bah, gave assurances that Côte d'Ivoire had still the possibility of organizing the African Nations Championship.

    This, after taking the stock of steps already taken underpinned by documents relating to the statement made by the Cabinet to demonstrate the effective support of the Ivorian authorities. Following the intervention of Florent Bah, some members of FIBA Africa waved the thorny issue inherent to the current situation of the country. "In fact, they wanted to politicize the debate. And the President of FIBA Africa said vehemently that it was out of question to introduce political issues into basket. Security issues were left aside.

    The case of Côte d'Ivoire is not isolated as Somalia and Angola have hosted the competition as they were at war, "instructed Moise Kore.

    Thabeet plays in the NBA and wont be available for tournaments during the season. Also, the TBF won't be able to pay flights as well as insurances for him. Unless he pays everything out of his pocket, he wont suit up for the national-tream anytime soon.

    Many thanks for sharing the contributing factors that are detrimental to Thabeet's participation with the team.

    Egypt is still trying to convince FIBA to postpone (again) the zone V qualifiers due to the riots in the country, but from I was able to gather, the tournament will take place 7th-12th of February in Kigali (Rwanda)
    http://www.fiba-afrique.org/index.ph...mid=26&lang=en

    The hosts are flying in Kenny Wilson "Gasana" from Texas altogether with a new recruit named Joseph Works as their club-team Texas Fuel reports on www.usbasket.com:
    "THE FUEL OTHER ALLSTAR KENNY WILSON AND ALSO SMALL FORWARD JOSEPH WORKS WILL RETURN LATE FEBUARY ON LEAVING TO GO PLAY IN AFRICA."
    "Mathieu" Matt Miller should be there too, lets see if Robert Thomson is also included.

    Egypt is already qualified and there is no need for a second postponement of the tournament. I see Rwanda coming first while Uganda and Kenya are battling out the second qualifier for the African Champs.

    He's a millionaire he can afford insurance.... Also there's nothing going on in August.... But I guess you do what your team tells you to do when you don't get any play time. Sad.

    It was more about the qualifiers who just started...and without him, Tanzania is weak compared to Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya.

    Rwandan News:

    "Darius Brannon from Houston Blaze (USA), Edwin Mbanda from CSK (Rwanda), Kenny Gasana from NH Ostrava(USA) Joshua Tarver from Oregon State University (USA) and Andrew Francis from APR(Rwanda) didn’t get the green light to play for Rwanda in the opening match.

    “I don’t know if FIBA will allow them to play other matches of the competition but we will wait and see, it’s up to the federation to look for their papers” Disclosed Veceslav after the match."

    Edwin Mbanda is a 6-8 center from the US (Eastern University)
    Darrius Brannon is a 6-8 forward from Texas (Univ. of Houston)
    Kenny "Gasana" Wilson is also from Texas and known for his scoring in the last African Championships.
    Josh Tarver is a 6-3 guard from Sacramento (Oregon State)
    Andrew Francis is a 6-8 forward from Texas (Univ. of Houston and UTSA).

    Other imports include Matt Miller and Stanley Thomson as well as Kami Kabange.

    Rwanda didn't give their new imports fake names? Were their imported women's players allowed to play?

    I think Edwin Mbanda is actually from Rwanda.

    It didn't matter in the opening round:

    Rwanda 98-60 Burundi
    Kenya 76-61 Uganda

    Looks like most of the imports (namely Andrew Francis, Kenny Wilson, Edwin Mbanda and Josh Tarver) of Rwanda wont play at all, as Rwanda continued to win without them the third time in a row. So it will be either Kenya or Burundi that will follow the hosts to the African Champs.
