Quarter-Final lineup promises sparks at FIBA Africa Women's Champions Cup 2018
MAPUTO (FIBA Africa Women's Champions Cup 2018) - African five-time record champions InterClube from Angola and Nigeria's First Bank have marched into the last eight with a 4-0 win ratio as we approach the business end of the tournament that tips off on Friday.
InterClube's top position in Group A with eight points means that they will take on Madagascar's MB2ALL that secured a place in the Quarter-Finals at the last hurdle today when they defeated Lakers from Zimbabwe 58-48 in a hard-fought victory which was their first at the tournament.
Hosts and second placed Ferroviario de Maputo will battle Kenya Ports Authority with the latter eyeing a first ever place in the tournament Semi-Finals.
The home side are eyeing a fourth straight qualification to the last four and achieving that is a minimum requirement from their expectant home fans that have enjoyed quite a show already.
"It will be a difficult game because no one wants to lose at this stage. we shall give everything we can to win and make it to the semi-finals," Ingvild Macauro explained.
First Bank take on FAP from Cameroon in a neighbourly face-off that will produce a good back court battle between Alexandra Green(FAP) and Jasmine Nwajei(First Bank).
Meanwhile, the Congolese derby between CNSS and AS Vita should make for a good match-up filled with the face of rivalry and its gnawing teeth and indeed a debut place in the Semi-Finals awaits the victor and what a story that will be!
