    Default Cape Verde basketball

    The Cape Verdian basketball federation is seeking to hire a foreign coach for the national team. The federation's president is in the USA trying to hire a coach whose name wasn't revelead, but who knows very well Cape Verdian players, especially those playing in the US (like NBA's Ryan Gomes).
    If this hiring fails, the most probable candidate is former NT coach Emanuel Trovoada who conquered bronze in Afrobasket 2007. The team is looking forward to repeat the deed again in Afrobasket 2009.

    The new NT coach will be Cameroonian Lazare Adingono. Adingono led the Cameroon to a surprising silver medal in Afrobasket two years ago and was assistant coach at Canisius College until the beginning of April.

    Default National league final

    A very short and fast played league it seems. Seven Stars defeated Pantera Negra 61-49 in the final to claim the title.

    !! The league lasted for like less than 2 weeks .
    It's good at least they have a league and their NT has greatly developed especially due to their players abroad in the States.

    Yeah, their national team could be very strong if all the players in the US would join.

    Just being curious: do Cape Verdean players play in Portuguese clubs as national players? Because that could benefit its NT greatly

    Cipriano Cut from Poznan - Oct 22, 2009 (by Pedro Gomes)

    According to team website, Cape Verdean national team players, Pedro Cipriano (206-F-83, college: Southern), Played his last game for Poznan, against Anwil Wloclawek, a total of 3 games. The Cape Verdian did not impress the coaching staff, during the two-week trial period, and the club decided not sign him with the seasonal contract.

    'Along with the president and director of sports, we have decided to part ways with Pedro Cipriano. He helped us in the system, during training, but I thought that his offensive capabilities are a bit limited as a big man. He is a very good person, and I wish him all the best for further career '- explains coach Kijewski.

    Basketball: Ivan Almeida leads Stonehill to victory over Adelphi in OT, 60-59

    Capeverdean Sophomore guard, Ivan Almeida, ended with a game-high 16 points (13 after halftime), shooting 6-for-12 from the field while converting 3-of-4 free-throws, to go with six rebounds and four assists to lift Stonehill College, among teams receiving votes in this week's National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Division II poll, to a 60-59 victory over Adelphi University in a key Northeast-10 Conference men's basketball matchup at the Center for Recreation & Sport.
    Stonehill came away with its sixth-straight win - second one-point comeback win of the week.
    Look for Almeida to have another strong performance as Stonehill (15-3, 12-1 NE-10) is back in action on Tuesday when it hosts Le Moyne College for a key NE-10 battle in Merkert Gymnasium at 7:30 p.m.
