Host Mali begins its Group A campaign in the FIBA Afrobasket Women against Tunisia tonight. 

The Malians are determined to return to the podium after placing fifth in the last two editions of the continental tournament. Back to lead the squad is Kankou Coulibaly, the team's top scorer in the 2015 Afrobasket in Cameroon. The 27-year-old center also led Mali to the gold medal in the 2015 African Games in Brazzaville.

Also back are 2015 Afrobasket veterans Nassira Traore, Fatoumata Bagayoko, Naignouma Coulibaly, Ramata Diakite, Meiya Tirera and Aissata Maiga. Other players selected by head coach Sylvain Lautie were Mariam Coulibaly, Touty Gandega, Kouta Camara, Minata Keita and 6-foot-8 center Astan Dabo. 

Tunisia, meanwhile, automatically qualified for this tournament for the first time since 2011 after Morocco pulled out of their two-game qualifying series last April. 

Expected to lead the North Africans in their quest to end a 16-year medal drought is veteran center Salma Mnasria, who is making her fourth appearance in this competition. 

Other players picked by head coach Mohamed Ryadh Ben Abdallah were Chaima Ben Mahmoud, Marwa Shili, Houda Hamrouni, Monia Ben Mechlia, Khouloud Mefteh, Imen Jedidi Mistiri, Hela Msadak, Siwar Khlifa, Wafa Loubiri, Maherzia Ksouri Sbeii and Beya Ben Ameur.

Mali crushed Tunisia 69-45 in the 2011 Afrobasket in Bamako in their last meeting in this competition.
