Guinea’s Male Team.
A good year has turned to a great one following news of Guinea’s National Female Basketball Team’s qualification to the Women’s Africa Basketball Championship (AfroBasket).

The team earned the spot thanks to Cape-Verde’s withdrawal from the qualifiers. This year’s competition takes place in Bamako, Mali between September 15-24.

This will be the team’s second straight appearance at the Championship after competing in the 2015 tournament in Cameroon.

Guinea’s qualification means the number of qualified teams stands at nine with three more available places.

Guinea’s Male National Team has also qualified for the Championship via a Wild Card slot ensuring both teams will represent the West African country at the continental stage.

The men’s competition will be held a month earlier between August 19-30.

However, the host country is yet to be settled on after original host Republic of Congo withdrew and replacement Angola’s hesitancy to host the Championship.
