Tournament story from FIBA (http://www.fiba.com/pages/eng/fe/14/wcm/news/p/nid/68044/article.html):

ABIDJAN (AfroBasket/FIBA Basketball World Cup) - The number of African players plying their trade in Europe and the USA has increased astonishingly in the past few years and a great number of them will show what they can do for their national teams at AfroBasket 2013, a qualifying tournament for the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain.

The 16-team tournament, divided in four groups, tips off on Tuesday in Cote d'Ivoire's capital city of Abidjan.

Players come from the most prestigious basketball leagues in the world including the NBA, Spain's ACB, France's Ligue National de Basket, the Greek League, China's CBA and a lot more bring their USA college experience.

Since the FIBA Basketball World Cup increased the numbers of teams from 16 to 24 in 2006, Africa gained one more place and the top three African teams secure direct qualification to the event.

Intriguingly, the number of potential world cup contenders has doubled with Tunisia, Senegal, Nigeria, Angola, Cameroon and Cote d'Ivoire on the frontlines.

In Group A, hosts Cote d'Ivoire will take on Egypt, Senegal and Algeria.

Defending champions Tunisia are in Group B alongside AfroBasket debutants Burkina Faso, Rwanda and Morocco.

Angola are in Group C alongside Mozambique, Central African Republic and Cape Verde.

In Group D, Nigeria will square off against Cameroon, Mali and Republic of Congo.

Go Guy!

Brutal finish to the tournament for Ivory Coast. After winning their first 5 games, they only needed to win 1 of their last 2 to finish in the Top 3, which would've guaranteed them a spot in the 2014 World Championship. They dropped both, including today's 57-56 loss to Senegal. Up 3 with 15 seconds left, Ivory Coast gave up a 4-point play on Senegal's last possession.

After averaging 20 minutes per in the first 5 games, Guy played only 15 minutes total in the last 2. He ended up averaging 4.7 points and 2.6 rebounds in the tournament.
