    Ivory Coast Target Afrobasket Title

    Ivory Coast Basketball Federation, ICBF, have turned to a familiar name in an attempt to return to the summit of African basketball.

    French side Paris Levallois Coach, Christophe Denis, whose father was on the technical staff 26 years ago when Ivory Coast last won the Afrobasket, has been put in charge of the senior national team, The Elephants.

    Speaking on his immediate target, Denis said: ““For sure, what we want as the host nation is to win the tournament (2013 Afrobasket).

    “This is our goal.”

    “We need to focus on motivating our players. As the host nation, we will do our best to win Afrobasket 2013.”

    As for how long Denis runs the team, he said: “Initially, I have signed a contract for the Afrobasket and to qualify the team to Spain 2014.

    “As the federation wants to keep consistency in the coaching staff, we may stay longer.”

    The Ivory Coast last won an Afrobasket title in 1985 with an 84-73 triumph over Angola.

    Ivory Coast also have three silver medals (1978, 1980 and 2009) in their history.

    “Qualifying for the 2014 World Cup in Spain is equally one of our objectives.”

    Ivory Coast are 37th in the FIBA World Rankings, just below Senegal, and fourth in Africa rankings. Angola are top, followed by Nigeria.

    Jeff Xavier is in the States. No idea where Josh Gomes is. Brendan Monteiro has not yet become eligible - FIBA is barring him from playing.

    Three players of Cape Verde have been barred from playing due to eligibility concerns.
    The players Brendan Monteiro (USA), Jean Claude (SEN) and Pedro Silva (POR) played the first game but sat out the last two.
    CV's federation is currently trying to make them eligible by tomorrow.

    I don't understand the FIBA rules. Wy they barred 3 players with Cape Verde nationality?
    Those players have there portuguese real name 's goted from there parents who were from Cape Verde.
    The situation its similar with the americans in Nigeria.
    Country's like Lybia and Rwanda played with players with fake nationality and identification.
    This is the DOLLAR TALKING...SHAME ON FIBA.

    With a win over Senegal, Cabo Verde would be in Afrobasket 13. Otherwise they are playing a do-or-die against Mali.

    How do they separate teams on the same points?

    If it's overall points differential, Cape Verde could beat Senegal, but would still not quite be qualified, as Mali and Senegal could both finish on 4 wins and 2 losses as well (Senegal beats Mauritania, Mali beats Mauritania and Cape Verde).

    If it's head-to-head points differential, it would go down to the points scored in the matches not involving Mauritania - in which case, Cape Verde could still go out even if they beat Senegal.
