    My boys are out, but at least they made some noise.
    They lost the games against Croatia and P. Rico only because they had two brain farts - 2nd Q against Croatia(200 turnovers in a row) and 1st Q against Puerto Rico.
    If Cameroon had NBA/Euroleague/ULEB/ACB/NBDL guard that means at least one victory.
    47-70
    76-58

    Cameroon have the potential not for only one victory but for many...the only thing they must do is not follow the way of work of Nigeria, senegal and others.

    So true, even in the face of losses Cameroon made ferocious comebacks in both games, and they showed that they belonged despite all those that complain that African and Asian countries do not belong.

    In addition to holding their heads high for playing out the games for pride, they represented their country well and they have a bright future. Now only if they can get support from their internal administration.

    Wild Cards: "I am hopeful that Cameroon will be getting the opportunity to compete against the very best in the world"
    [by Kris SANTIAGO] - Merhaba!

    I had the chance to talk to Cameroon's national-team coach Lazar Adingono regarding Cameroon's effort to get one of the wild-cards for Turkey 2010.


    Lazare, this past summer, Joe Touomou led the Cameroonian national-team to a fourth place finish in Libya. Are you now back on the coaching seat for Cameroon again?
    Joe Touomou worked tirelessly in an effort to get the National team ready to compete in the African Nations Cup and in a short period of time. He did a great job under the circumstances the team was giving to him. I am back on board and I am in for the long hall.

    There has been interest by Cameroon to obtain one of the wild-cards for the World Championships in Turkey 2010. How far goes the interest and has there been an official word so far by the federation?

    Kris, I think President Nduku and his entire administration together with the help of the Ministry of sports have put the country's best effort forward and presented Cameroon's appeal to the committee which is assigned to reward the most deserving countries with a wild card. I am confident that the committee will look at the entire body of work that Cameroon has done in the past few years and may afford us an opportunity to continue to develop basketball not only in Cameroon but in Africa as a whole.


    I heard that the preparation for the African Championships 2009 went down in Cameroon and without any notable opponents. If Cameroon gets one of the wild-cards, will it be finally able to practice under professional circumstances?

    I think the Federation did a great job bringing the team into the camp but let me take a look into the future: I am now serving as an associate coach at Erie Community College with Alex Nwora the current head basketball coach for the Cape Verde National Team and we have access to a state of the art facility which will enable us to train in the United States all year around. I believe all is being put in place to ensure that we prepare very well in the event the committee grants us one of the four wild cards available.
    I already started working with the Federation in putting a plan in order to have very good preparations by contacting a number of NBA, NDBL, ABA, and also other countries to hold friendly games.

    How would you rate the chances of your country for a wild-card and how would you see your chances succeeding in Turkey 2010?

    Kris, I am hopeful that Cameroon will be getting the opportunity to compete against the very best in the world. If my memory serves me well, a year ago, we showed the world what we are capable of in Athens and gave both Croatia and Puerto Rico all pretty good fight while representing the African continent in the Pre-Olympic Qualifiers.


    What are your personal plans for the near future?

    I am currently serving as an associate coach at Erie Community College and I am working with the youth worldwide in an effort to give hope to many aspiring young men and women and to let them continue of dreaming big and of achieving their goals in life.

    Thanks for taking the time to talk to us and good luck for December, 13th!

    * In 25-plus years of covering Boo’s tournament, it never fails: I go to check out one player and come away impressed with another. Such was the case with Team Takeover from the Washington, D.C. area.

    DeMatha High forward Jerami Grant, brother of Clemson’s Jerai and son of former Clemson and NBA player Harvey, was the target. He seemed fluid enough before exiting the game after a nasty spill, but Takeover’s eye-opener was small forward Arnaud Adala-Moto from the Episcopal School in Alexandria.

    First this 6-foot-7 junior drove the right baseline and elevated for a nasty tomahawk dunk. Then he pulled up for a left-wing 3-pointer. Pure. Then he handled smoothly in transition and penetrated for a layup.

    Just a glimpse, mind you, but very striking. Comrade Josh Barr of the Washington Post reports that Adala-Moto was discovered in Cameroon by the NBA’s Basketball Without Borders programs and has more than a dozen scholarship suitors, including Wake Forest and Seton Hall.

    There will be no trip to China. Currently, the Ministry of Sports is not giving out any money for the first stages of training. The national-team may travel to Morocco, who invited them and maybe to Serbia due to Peak, who are sponsoring Cameroon. Also, they are sending out the tickets for the players now and there won't be a big selection of players. Mbah A Moute is in Yaounde currently, but even though local newspapers report, that he might be playing, I think he won't.

On account of abnormal behavior of my heart and the chance to further damage my heart by continuing to play basketball, I was told by doctors, to minimize any stress. Despite taking tests that showed my heart was ok through continued stress, I didnt want to take the risk and decided to retire. My health and family are more important. I wish all players that have abnormal behavior with their heart to take it seriously and make tests so they can make the right decisions concerning their career. I want to thank all teams and coaches that I had the chance to play for them. It was a big gift to have worked with so manygreat players. I also value the support of the fans. Myfamily and I really appreciate the chances that basketball gave us. The wonderful memories and successes will always remain with us', stressed Ruben Boumtje boumtje.

    Basketball, Lions in Camp

    They are preparing for a tournament in China to run from July 16 to 28.
    Players of the national basketball team are in camp at the Yaounde sports complex to prepare for a tournament in China. During the tournament, the basketball Lions will play against five Chinese clubs. So far, only three of the five professionals invited have responded present and three more are expected from France today together with a French coach, Perrain Michel, who will offer a helping hand to the Cameroon basketball federation. They are sorting out visa modalities to China from France before boarding the plane for Cameroon.
    According to the coach who will accompany the team for the Chinese expedition, Lumumba Monikang, the tournament is organised by the official sponsor of the basketball national team, Peak, to serve as preparation for the qualifying series for the Africa Cup of Nations in basketball to begin in September. Monikang says he is working on the individual technics of the players and when the other coaches arrive, they will work on tactics. It is worthy to note it is the second time Cameroon is being invited to China for the tournament. Last year the basketball lions were unable to travel because of financial difficulties. The team captain, Gaston Essengue expressed the wish for Cameroon to multiply such initiatives so as to raise the level of Cameroonian basketball.
    During the qualifiers, Cameroon will play in zone 4 with opponents such as Gabon, Central African Republic, Equatorial Guinea and Congo. The best performance of the Cameroon national basketball team was in 2007 when they won the silver medal at the FIBA African championship in Angola.

    I'm aware of 3 of their games in China: vs. Fujian (18th), Dongguan (19th) and Tianjin (21st). Not sure about the other 2 games. Dongguan will play some imports since they always have foreign players on their squad year-round as practice players.
