Senegal vs Nigeria Preview

 
Senegal and Nigeria clash in the final of the FIBA Afrobasket Women at the Palais des Sports Salamatou Maiga in Mali tonight.  
 
Senegal crushed Mozambique 72-52 in yesterday's semifinals while Nigeria edged host Mali 48-47. Both teams also secured tickets to next year's FIBA Women's World Cup in Spain. 

Astou Traore will lead the Senegalese in their quest for back-to-back titles. The Galatasaray forward scored 22 points against the Mozambicans and leads the tournament in scoring. 

Head coach Moustapha Gaye will also rely on Aya Traore, Mame-Marie Sy-Diop and Oumoul Thiam. 

Unbeaten Nigeria, meanwhile, boasts of WNBA rookie Evelyn Akhator and Portugal-based guard Ezinne Kalu. Akhator is averaging 15.6 points and 9.9 rebounds while Kalu had 11 points against the Malians. Other key players for head coach Sam Vincent are Atonye Nyingifa and Sarah Ogoke.

The Nigerians defeated the Senegalese 58-54 in the preliminary round. This is the first finals meeting between the two teams in this competition since 2005 where Nigeria posted a 64-57 victory before its fans in Abuja. That was also the last time the Nigerians won this tournament.
