The quarterfinal of the Afrobasket gets underway at the Salle Omnisport de Rades featuring the duel between Morocco and Egypt.

The Moroccans topped Group B after posting wins over the Central African Republic (76-66), Angola (60-53) and Uganda (79-70). Abderrahim Najah and Abdelali Lahraichi are again expected to lead the squad after averaging over 12 points per game in the group stage.

They will get support from Mohamed Choua, Adil El Makssoud and John Wilkins. Head coach Said El Bouzidi will try to lead Morocco to the medal round of this competition for the first time since 1980 when it took the bronze medal at home. 

Egypt, meanwhile, finished second in Group D with a 2-1 record. The Pharaohs posted wins over Mozambique (75-47) and South Africa (70-51) and lost to Senegal (52-87).

Top scorer and rebounder Haytham Kamal Khalifa will try to lead Egypt to the medal round of this tournament for the first time since its surprise runner-up finish in 2013. The Al Ittihad center averaged 10.3 points and 5.3 rebounds in the group stage.

Other key players for head coach Amr Abouelkhir are guards Ibrahim El Gamal and Amr El Gendy and forward Moustafa Almekawy.
