    The African qualifiers are not working on a home-and-away system, instead each group will have two legs where the teams gather at a single site and play each other over three days. Groups A and C get underway in Yaounde and Luanda this window, while Groups B and D will start in February. All four groups will have their second leg in the June/July window when player availability is presumably easier.

    Some interesting games today...Egypt needed a late three to take Congo to overtime before winning...Cameroon was down 60-50 to Chad with about six minutes left, then outscored them 15-0 for the remainder of the game to pull out the win.

    Caught the replay of Angola/Egypt. Good game, great crowd, think the announced attendance was 10,000. That said it had plenty of the dreaded vuvuzelas.

    FIBA will make a resolution in Nigeria's basketball leadership crisis where NBBF are eagerly awaiting the ruling. Decision is on March 10 and I hope it's a not suspension.

    I really wonder who will come out as Africa's consistent top team, if anybody? Senegal still has some really major players but Congo has so much young talent, and you also have Cameroon and the unstoppable Embiid. Then there is the hugely populated Nigeria and the traditional powers Egypt, Angola, and Tunisia.

    Imo it will be between Nigeria and Congo or Senegal but Cameroon will be a force if Embiid is cleared to play for them at some point.

    Lebanon-based Johndre Jefferson, part of the TBT-dominating Overseas Elite team, has been added as a naturalized player.

    Senegal roster with Gorgui Dieng, no Maurice Ndour or Hamady Ndiaye:

    Overseas Elite are becoming the stuff of legend, I swear.

    Senegal will definitely have issues without N'Dour but basketball is about next man up. It should be interesting to see who, if anybody, can fill his shoes.

    DRC has now beaten both Angola and Egypt in this short window of qualifying games. Wow.

    Nigeria could potentially wrap up qualification tomorrow if they beat Central African Republic and Mali and Rwanda both lose.

    Given the format for Africa we could see 2 or 3 teams qualify by Tuesday.

    Nigeria is as close to a lock as you can get, 2 games at home and they only need 1 to qualify. Given their dominance it seems like a safe bet. Tunisia and Senegal also have chances, though Senegal has to deal with Nigeria.

    Cameroon and Egypt play for third place in Africa Group E tomorrow, Egypt is one game ahead so I think Cameroon needs to win by four to get the head-to-head tiebreaker. If Egypt wins they qualify for the WC since the third-place team in the other group can't do better than 7-5, Cameroon would have to wait until the other group finishes in February but they would be in good shape.

    Cameroon rolled Egypt 80-60 to take third place. Central African Republic and/or Cote d'Ivoire will have to sweep all their games in February and pull ahead of Cameroon in whatever the tiebreaker is (they are both pretty far behind on point differential) in order to qualify.

    Cameroon wins 80-60, eliminating Egypt.

    Right now standings for 3rd place is
    Cameroon 7-5 19 pts +78
    Central African Republic 4-5 13 pts -41
    Ivory Coast 4-5 13 pts +13

    Cameroon's in a nice spot, both CAR and Ivory Coast have to win out to stay alive and they both have to play Nigeria. Even if they manage it's hard to see either of them surpassing Cameroon's +78. Point difference.

    Senegal meanwhile should qualify easy, they just need a win and play both Rwanda and Mali who have both been eliminated.

    Senegal, as expected, makes it look easily and casually qualifies.

    I saw chances for Ivory Coast to win tonight, especially this round bein' held in Abidjan, but demolishing Nigeria that big is a huge surprise. Big step towards World Cup for Ivory Coast, that big margin will help them a lot in case to overcome Cameroon. I bet they'll win easily vs Rwanda and Mali too. Only obstacle - CAR winning against Nigeria tomorrow
