Senegal vs Angola Preview

 
Perennial medalists Senegal and Angola find themselves in early collision course as they duel in the FIBA Afrobasket quarterfinals at the Salle Omnisport de Rades.

Senegal was hardly tested in Group D as it breezed past South Africa (83-44), Egypt (87-52) and Mozambique (80-49). Minnesota Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng is a marked man for the Lions after he put up 14.7 points in the group stage.

Head coach Porfirio Fisac will also rely on Maurice Ndour, Mouhammad Faye and Antoine Mendy as they aim to again reach the medal round after placing fourth two years ago. Cheikh Mbodj, Youssou Ndoye and Djibril Thiam are also out to contribute in this match-up. 

Angola, meanwhile, finished second to Morocco in Group B. The 11-time champions began the tournament with a 94-89 overtime win over Uganda before losing to the Moroccans 53-60 in their succeeding game. They concluded the group stage with a 66-44 demolition of the Central African Republic. 

Former Afrobasket MVP Carlos Morais is the focal point of Angola's offense after putting up 15.7 points in the group phase. Head coach Manuel Silva will also count on Reggie Moore, Yanick Moreira and Olimpio Cipriano. 

Angola is determined to win this game as it has never missed the medal round of this competition since placing eighth in 1981.  

The winner of this game will face either Nigeria or Cameroon in the semifinals.

Senegal edged Angola 74-73 in the group stage of the 2015 Afrobasket in their last meeting in this competition. Dieng had 24 points and nine rebounds in that game while Morais paced the Angolans with 19 points.
