Both semifinals will be played today. Senegal-Egypt at 12:00 and Ivory Coast-Angola at 2:30 EST. Link to streams is in the first post.

The winner of each match clinches a spot in the FIBA World Cup next year while the losers get one more shot in a 3rd place match.

Man, the atmosphere even from the first round at this tournament is 10x better than the first game of the FIBA Americas. The Senegalese fans rushed the court after their upset of Nigeria.

Egypt leads 20-15 after 1.

Egypt makes the finals and qualifies for the FIBA World Cup with a great upset over Senegal! They won 70-63 after going winless in the group stages.


Their best player, Marei, plays D2 basketball in the US but he should be playing for at least a good mid-major school.

What an awesome story for Egyptians with all the turmoil going on back home.

I think we can all agree on one thing.

Angola defeats Egypt and reclaims its title as kings of African basketball! Egypt should be very proud of their result in this tournament.

Senegal beat the Ivorians for the third world cup spot in heartbreaking fashion with a 4 point play to win the game.

Props to the Ivorians for hosting an excellent tournament with a great atmosphere.

I remember watching Angola vs China in a grainy television in '08 in my uncle's apartment in china. There was one dude on Angola who looked like a T-Rex and had Jamal Crawford game

Guard play has traditionally been a major weakness in African basketball but it's really improving. Scouting from France and Spain has been a big contributor since they're routinely finding talent in Africa and developing them.

The level of play in this tournament is certainly higher than the Asian championships. Those teams have better fundamentals but wouldn't be able to compete with this athleticism and defense. Iran is probably the only Asian team that would win this competition.

Cameroon has a lot of good past NCAA players - Alfred Aboya (UCLA), Alexis Wangmene (Texas), Brice Vounang (San Diego) and Mbah A Moute from the Bucks. Mbah A Moute has been atrocious in this first half - 0 points and multiple turnovers.

Cameroon leads Congo 33-26 at the half.

Seeing the link above, using factual results and not some fabrication of my mind, this are the scores of Egypt (2nd in Afrobasket) playing against Iran (1st in Asia) and Korea (3rd in Asia)

South Korea 80 - 63 Egypt
Iran 90 - 56 Egypt
