The draws were made just as the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) released the latest ranking for women’s team across the world. Nigeria retained the 21st spot from the previous position from last month. Senegal maintained the African lead on the table at the 18th position. Like Nigeria, Senegal retained the former position.

Nigeria is in Group B with Congo, Angola, Cameroon, Kenya and Cape Verde. Group A has Senegal, Mozambique, Tunisia, Cote d'Ivoire, Mali and Madagascar.
The Lady Tigers of Nigeria will be in Dakar from September 21st to 30th as the defending champions of the African Cup which they won in 2003 in Mozambique and defended successfully in Abuja in 2005. In their group, former champions Congo are seen as the potent contenders for a ticket to the next level.

Analysts tip Nigeria and Congo as the most likely teams to lead the group but with both teams definitely working extra hard to handle the threat of Angola. The Congolese led by popular WNBA player Mabita lost to Nigeria at the semi-final level in Abuja 2005.

In the other group all teams except Madagascar are seen as potential qualifiers with the Senegalese, Malians and Mozambicans seen as those with the most potential to excel. The Tunisian ladies are ranked 23rd, Malians 36th, Angolans 45th and Congo 46th.
