    Default Afrobasket 2007


    The first regional championships have begun. Afrobasket, held this year in Luanda, the largest city and the capital of Angola features 16 teams - Angola, Cameroon, Cape Verde Island, Central African Republic, Congo, Egypt, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Mali, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa, and Tunisia.

    The main question, as with most African tournaments in recent memory is Can Angola be beat? and not just that, can they be defeated when the tournament is being held in Luanda? Olumide Oyedeji believes that many African teams can defeat the perennial African champions, but most teams on this continent lack Angola's dedication. [article]

    If Angola's first game was any indication, it's going to be a difficult task to unseat the defending champions. Angola defeated Afrobasket first-timers Rwanda 109-66. Angola was led by Olimpio Cipriano's 17 points. Joaquim Gomes added 15 points and Eduardo Mingas posted 14.

    Elhadji Ndoye scored 15 points for Senegal helping to defeat Mali last night in their opening Afrobasket game played in Angola. Senegal, the defending Afrobasket silver medalists, will play Egypt next.

    is it true that Algeria decided not to play because of a bad performance in a previous tournament? That is totally crazy.

    Can we get a list of the best players from each team?

    So, Angola and Nigeria would meet each other in the semifinals if everything goes as expected. Cameroon has a big chance of making the final.

    I'd love to see Cape Verde make the qualifying tournament too...several of their players have ties to the Boston area. I wonder if they could convince Ryan Gomes to play for them if they make it that far.

    Interesting story about one of their players:

    Excellent win for Cape Verde. All in all they do have a strong team with Rodrigo Mascarenhas (bulky all-around player and a superb rebounder), Marques Houtman, Aldevino Lima (a good prospect), Mário Jorge and others.
    Congrats to Cape Verde
