    Let's see the possible candidates for the 3 wildcards.

    1. Senegal should be the first and most possible candidate.
    2. Algeria is a good team for Africa Basketball, so i strongly believe that they are one step ahead for the second wildcard.
    3. Central African Rep. is sudenly a candidate, unless they made a comeback to their zone qualifier.
    4. Rwanda is another possible candidate for the wildcard but due to financial problems and some "rifts" between the american born players and the federation, i don't think they will get it.

    So, this is the current situation

    AFROBASKET
    Zone 1: Morocco
    Zone 2: Cape Verde, Mali
    Zone 3: Ivory Coast, Nigeria (probably)
    Zone 4: Cameroon, Gabon
    Zone 5; Egypt, Uganda
    Zones 6/7: Zimbabwe, Mozambique

    Holder: Angola
    Host: Tunisia
    Wildcards: (3) TBD

    ALL-AFRICA GAMES
    Zone 1: Morocco
    Zone 2: Cape Verde, Mali
    Zone 3: Ivory Coast, Nigeria (probably)
    Zone 4: Cameroon, Gabon
    Zone 5; Egypt
    Zone 6: Angola, Mozambique
    Zone 7: Seychelles

    Host: Congo

    Seems quite likely that Burkina Faso will withdraw against Nigeria in Zone 3 qualifying.

    Result today: Gabon 64-75 Central African Republic.

    Gabon took the first period 20-8, but it was all downhill for them from there. Gabon still favourites, I think, but any of the 3 teams can still win the group. If Gabon beat Chad, the last match between CAR and Chad is meaningless. This would be only Gabon's 3rd Afrobasket if they qualify, while it would be Chad's 2nd if they qualify. Central African Republic has 17 previous appearances and 2 titles.

    BASKETBALL : D'TIGERS Fly ASKY To Burkina On Friday
    BY Oluwafemi Adefeso
    The contingent of players and officials of the Nigerian senior men's national team the D'Tigers will leave the shores of the country on Friday 13th March aboard ASKY Air from the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport in Abuja for the 1st leg of their FIBA Africa Basketball Championship qualifiers in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.



    The qualifier which doubles as the qualifiers for the All African Games in Congo Brazzerville later this year will see the D'Tigers take on the Burkinabes' on Monday March 16th before coming back home for the return leg on the 25th of March according to the FIBA Africa secretariat qualifiers schedule release.



    The team strength has however been boosted for the most win double header by the arrival of the foreign based duo of Ejike Ugboaja, who remains the 1st and only Nigerian to be drafted by the NBA directly from the Nigerian Premier Basketball League in 2006 and veteran captain Olumide Oyedeji who currently stars for the London Lions in the UK.



    The team and officials will however have a media chat with press men this evening before boarding the Asky Airline early tomorrow morning.

    Nigeria’s 18-Man Squad Storm Ouagadougou

    Nigeria senior men basketball team D’Tigers will travel to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso on Friday for the first leg tie against the Burkinabe in Group E double qualifiers for the 29th Afrobasket and the 11th All Africa Games.
    The Nigeria’s 18-man list led by the president of the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF), Tijjani Umar, will take on the Burkinabe on Monday, 16 March with the return leg slated for 25 March in Nigeria.
    The squad are made up of 12 players with 10 of them drawn from the Nigerian DStv Premier Basketball League and two foreign based players.
    Nigeria’s hope of qualifying for her 17th outing at Africa biggest basketball showpiece rest on coaches Sani Ahmed and Ayinla Johnson and 12 players who include Olumide Oyedeji (centre); Ejike Ugboaja (forward); Stanley gumut (forward); Abubakar Usman (guard); Matthew Onmonya (forward); and Ibrahim Yusuf (guard/forward) are on the team.
    Other players in the squad are Adeolu Olaiya Ojo (guard); Abdulwahab Yakubu (guard); Abdulwahab Yahaya (forward); Azuoma Dike (guard); Dele Ademola (forward) and Abayomi Oyeniyi (forward). The delegation also has Muktar Khaleh, Patrick Okeke (S.G, NBBF); Patrick Omorodion (media); Dr. Ohida Suleiman (team doctor) and Dayo Ogunkunle (physio).
    According to the Head Coach Sani Ahmed, the team will not disappoint Nigerians as the players and their handlers will leave nothing to chance to ensure that they pick the sole slot in the group.
    “We respect our opponents (Burkina Faso) but they are not capable of stopping us from qualifying for both the Afrobasket and the All Africa Games as we are looking forward to challenging for the Afrobasket title and also defending our All Africa Games gold medal won four years ago in Mozambique.
    “The players are ready to prove that they are worthy ambassadors of Nigerian basketball, mentally, physically and psychological prepared for the two-leg qualifier,” Coach Ahmed said.
    The team will fly to Lagos from their Abuja camp from where they are expected to connect an afternoon flight aboard ASky airline.

    What about CAR? If these three are the main candidates for the two remaining spots, Algeria and Congo are my picks.

    The composition of the groups:

    Group A: 1.Tunisia ; 2.Uganda ; 3.Nigeria ; 4.Wild card 1.
    Group B: 1. Angola; 2. Mozambique ; 3.Wild card 2 ; 4.Morocco .
    Group C: 1. Egypt; 2.Gabon ; 3. Mali; 4. Cameroon .
    Group D: 1.Cote d'Ivoire ; 2.Cape Verde ; 3.Wild card 3 ; 4.Zimbabwe .

    The first phase of the tournament will be played in a round robin format, with every team taking on its three (3) opponents in its respective group.

    All teams will then advance to the Round of 16, where Group A crosses with group C (A1-C4, etc.), and Group B with D.

    The tournament will be played in a knockout format from the Round of 16 onwards (Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and Final).

    AfroBasket 2015 will be held from 19-30 August in the Tunisian cities of Nabeul and Tunis and serves as a qualifying event for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

    It is the third time that Tunisia will get to stage the AfroBasket, having previously hosted it in 1965 and 1987.

    The teams designated as 'Wild Cards 1, 2 and 3' who will round out the event's 16-team field will be announced at the end of April.

    We don't know the 3 remaing teams so it's early for predictions. For example if Senegal is "wildcard 1", then group A is "group of Death".

    The final composition of the groups:

    Group A: 1.Tunisia 2.Uganda 3.Nigeria 4.Central African Republic
    Group B: 1. Angola; 2. Mozambique 3.Senegal 4.Morocco
    Group C: 1. Egypt 2.Gabon 3. Mali 4. Cameroon
    Group D: 1.Cote d'Ivoire 2.Cape Verde 3.Algeria 4.Zimbabwe

    The first phase of the tournament will be played in a round robin format, with every team taking on its three (3) opponents in its respective group.

    All teams will then advance to the Round of 16, where Group A crosses with group C (A1-C4, etc.), and Group B with D.

    If all players are available then we will see a great tournament. Host Tunisia, reign champions Angola, last year surprise at WC Senegal, talented Nigeria, and solid Cameroon are some among the favourites. Underdogs are Cote D'Ivoire,Egypt and Cape-Verde, but not very far from the others.

    The Angola-Senegal match-up ought to be interesting in Group B; top seed in the group probably on the line. If Nigeria can field its full compliment of players, I see them taking Group A with Tunisia second. I'll give Cameroon and Mali the nod in Group C, and I'll go Ivory Coast and Algeria to take 1-2 in Group D. Just a prediction of course.

    It seems that this year tournament will be very interesting to watch. Notable absences so far are:

    • Sami Driss(Tunisia) got injured and left the camp at Lithuania.
    • CAR's Mokongo is still at rehabilitation process and Mays declined invitation.
    • Yannick Moreira(Angola) has NBA commitments with Clippers, also Cipriano and Barros both of them got injured.
    • Maurice Ndour(Senegal) will try to make the Mavs roster. Hamady N'Diaye and Lamine Diane both decline invitation.
    • Egypt's Marei is probably out of the tournament.
    • Mbah a Moute is questionable for Cameroon. Sama and Essengue didn't appear at the trainning camp.


    I think Tunisia with Roll addition, Angola with their good chemistry, Nigeria with the star-strong squad and Senegal are the favourites.
