somehow:Sentiments in term of players selection..what happened to the whole crew that won the tournament 2 years ago ?
While not even at least 4 players from the winning team of 2015 in this current squad ?
|Re: Afrobasket 2017 by somehow: 7:01pm On Sep 10|
Someone above said it was a policy approach, they pushed in 6 home based players which meant some known names must give space
|Re: Afrobasket 2017 by somehow: 7:02pm On Sep 10|
Are you serious? Is the FIBA world cup 2019? 5 countries from Africa? This is not football o.

somehow:Oh i see..a policy to totally overhaul the team that won last championship. Seems they don't have the word 'continuity' in their dictionaries.
Why their policy shy away from building on existing structure ( formidable for that matter) but chose the path of total overhauling ?
Time shall tell how promising the policy is ..
|Re: Afrobasket 2017 by somehow: 8:07pm On Sep 10|
Pathetic. Their brain should have told them to input 2-3 home base per tourney till they achieve their threshold. Wondering who came up with this extreme policy.
|Re: Afrobasket 2017 by LagosEconomist: 8:28pm On Sep 10|
Read the 1st post of this thread and you have your answer. Dalung, Musa Kida and Sam Ahmedu happened.
The previous coach submitted a plan for this tournament months ago. They had an election a few weeks to Afrobasket (actually 2 elections) and 2 different bodies emerged. Dalung backed one of the bodies and those ones threw out Voigt and his plans. A lot of the players were not happy and a few that were contacted declined. Diogu accepted perhaps because he did not play during the last tounrnament.
That is how we ended up with this team. The so called home based policy is just dumb. None of these clowns will go to a General Hospital to be operated by a 'Home based' doctor if he has access to Johns Hopkins in America. Not even the President with the billions spent on Aso Rock clinic. The top tournament in the continent is not where you develop talent. Grassroot work needs a long term development plan and the accompanying economic plan but these clowns don't really care about that. We have enough talent available to us to be the 2nd best team in the world and these jokers are determined to mess everything up.
The Women's victory was down to Sam Vincent and Mfon Udoka, but I'm sure they would try to take the glory.

The pairings for the quarter finals
Cameroon appears to be a better opponent than Tunisia(co-host nation) to me
|Re: Afrobasket 2017 by somehow: 7:53am On Sep 11|
Great, thank you for the info.
|Re: Afrobasket 2017 by LagosEconomist: 9:23am On Sep 11|
Much better, but they won't be easy with this team we have. The good win vs Mali helped us top the group as we have the best points difference in the games between the 3 teams with 2 wins in the group.
Angola vs Senegal will the a great game to see.
Tunisia appear to have a clear path to the final, but strange things can happen.
|Re: Afrobasket 2017 by Famocious(m): 9:43am On Sep 11|
I agree with you. Game between Angola and Senegal is likely going to be keenly contested. Present Senegalese squad looks more formidable than the Angolans. Seems only Senegalese and Tunisian won all their 3 matches.
|Re: Afrobasket 2017 by somehow: 12:40pm On Sep 11|
Senegal should floor Angola and likely floor Nigeria too.
Their team looks more organised and composed compared to Nigeria or Angola

|Re: Afrobasket 2017 by somehow: 5:05pm On Sep 14|

The 3 point shooting 16/26 was crazy.
That gave us the game

LagosEconomist:Big ups to the lads. I heard they bossed the Cameroonians from the start to finish..
|Re: Afrobasket 2017 by PDPGuy: 7:08pm On Sep 14|
Congrats to D'Tigers! I didn't watch the game, but making over 50% of 3-pointers is impressive.

FIBA should ensure that the glass is strengthened further.
