Senegal finalise roster for Manila OQT
VALLADOLID (2016 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournaments) - Senegal on Tuesday finalised the 12-player roster for next week's FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament (OQT) in Manila.
With Youssou Ndoye and Moussa Camara both cut, the pair of Thierno Ibrahima Niang and Louis Adams - the only two home-based players - have joined a line-up that includes Senegalese players coming from as far and wide as Poland and Israel.

In the meantime Maurice Ndour and Hamady Ndiaye - two key players from the Senegalese side that stunned the basketball world at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup but missed last summer's African Championship - are set to return for the team that finished fourth at AfroBasket 2015.
From 5-10 July, Senegal will take to the court in Manila, looking to secure a spot at the Rio Olympics.
The Western Africans have been drawn in Group A along with Turkey and Canada. If they advance to the Semi-Finals, they will face a team from Group B which consists of hosts Philippines, France, and New Zealand. Only the winner of the tournament will advance to the Rio Olympics.
