Women Afrobasket 07 - Day-2: Angola shock Nigeria – 53-42, Mozambique, Mali in second win





The lose now put Nigeria in a tight corner as they confront another strong opposition in DR Congo Sunday before taking its quarter-final qualification to the door steps of Cape Verde and Kenya next Tuesday and Wednesday respectively.


In Dakar, Mozambique compounded the woes of Cote d’Ivoire to contest for the group-A top spot against Mali who was in excellent form against Madagascar.

The Mozambican defeated Cote d’Ivoire by with 67-46 points to maintain a hundred percent run in the championship.


Mali posted another impressive win with a 108-47 spanking of Madagascar to move to the top of group-A and an easy pairing against Cote d’Ivoire could see the Malian extending her unbeaten run.


In Thies, Cameroon recorded a surprise 54-52 points win over Mwadi Mabika and DR Congo colleagues to throw the group wide open.


This result thus returns Cameroon to a possible slot in the last eight and bitter confrontation between Congo and Nigeria on Sunday.


Kenya had the better of Cape Verde in group-B with a 67-48 points victory to leave the group wider open after Nigeria and DR Congo fell to Angola and Cameroon.

In group-A last game Saturday, home team came from behind to beat Tunisia 58-43 for its second win.


With the win Senegal joined Mozambique and group leader Mali and group-B leader Angola as the four teams that are yet to taste the bitter pill of defeat, but a game against Mozambique Sunday means the number of teams that are yet to lose a game would be reduced to three as either Senegal or Mozambique must drop a game.

1. Mozambique 67-46 Cote d’Ivoire (A)

2. Mali 108-47 Madagascar (A)
