The Basketball Lionesses qualified in the finals of the 24th edition of the Afrobasket by beating a brilliant team from Mozambique 60 to 57, in a crazy game. Yet Mozambique looked good to eliminate the team of Sheikh Sarr.
Led in the first three quarter time, the women’s basketball team of Senegal overcame that of Mozambique with a sparkling Astou Traore.
The Lionesses suffered a lot and shook a few minutes from the end of the match since the score was very tight. It’s finally Astou Traoré, with a three-point shot and two free throws following faults she provoked herself, that will make the difference and broke the hopes of this Mozambican team with a final score of 60 to 57.
Senegal will challenge a good team from Nigeria in the final on Sunday 18 August at 18h at the Dakar Arena.
