Nigeria vs Senegal Preview

 
Expect an exciting semifinal duel between defending champion Nigeria and Senegal at the Salle Omnisport de Rades tonight.

The Nigerians overcame the 32-point explosion of Ben Mbala to beat Cameroon 106-91 in their quarterfinal duel yesterday. Ike Diogu led D'Tigers with 28 points and nine rebounds while Ikechukwu Nwamu had 25 points and seven boards. Bryant Mbamalu also made his presence felt by posting 22 points.

All three players are again expected to step up in this game along with Ike Iroegbu and Washington Wizards center Daniel Ochefu. 

Senegal, meanwhile, advanced to the semifinals of this competition for the third consecutive time after beating perennial medalist Angola 66-57. Louis Adams fired 11 points while Clevin Hannah and former New York Knicks mainstay Maurice Ndour added 10 apiece.

The Lions also boast of Minnesota Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng and forwards Antoine Mendy and Mouhammad Faye. Senegal last reached the Afrobasket final in 2005 when it lost to Angola. 

Nigeria defeated Senegal 88-79 in overtime in the 2015 Afrobasket semifinal in Rades. Dieng had 20 points and 16 rebounds in that contest.
