Top performers at Day 3 in Yaounde


YAOUNDE (Cameroon) - There was great frenzy at the Yaounde sports complex as two major clashes, the Cameroon vs Cote d'Ivoire tussle and the cracker pitting Angola against Senegal lived up to the hype.

Equatorial Guinea ended the FIBA AfroBasket 2021 Qualifiers on a defeat, but Walter Cabral struck fans with his heroics.

Here now are the top performers from Sunday's games in Yaounde.

Walter Cabral (Equatorial Guinea)

When you hit an unmatched 24 points and have an efficiency of 28, you should be in the winning team.

Equatorial Guinea's Walter Cabral may feel hard done that his efforts couldn't grant his team a win and a highly awaited AfroBasket qualification.

Walter made sure he gave Guinea a run for their money providing 3 assists and an incredible 12 rebounds. But his heroics couldn't prevent an 80-71 loss to Guinea.

Daouda Conde (Guinea)

If Walter Cabral's efforts were made to look useless, it's because Guinea had a leader in Daouda Conde.

The 28-year-old center was impeccable on the charity line, converting all six attempts.

His five defensive rebounds were key as her annihilated all hopes of an Equatorial Guinea come back.

Kendal Manuel (Mozambique)


Finally, Mozambique have a win in the Qualifiers and they have Kendal Manuel to thank for it.

The shooting guard defied the Morans of Kenya's adversity chipping 15 points to inspire his nation to a 71-44 win.

Despite missing out on a qualification for the FIBA AfroBasket 2021, the 23-year old felt the performance was foretelling of greater things to come.

He later stressed: "Things didn't turn out as we expected but we wanted to go back home with a win.

"We were able to get the victory and we played some good basketball today. If we continue working hard an stay united, we can get better results in future competitions"

Pedro Bastos (Angola)


A three point jump shot at the buzz was the icing on the cake in what was an incredible evening for Pedro Bastos.

He scored an astonishing 24 points from beyond the arc and came out guns blazing in the cracker against Senegal.

The guard also shielded his rim with four rebounds as Angola cruised past Senegal 82-51 to bring an end to their run of five consecutive wins.
