Cameroon women’s basketball team continued their poor start in the ongoing Women’s AfroBasket tournament in Bamako Mali, with a slim defeat against Ivory Coast on Saturday.

The vice champions of Africa recorded their second defeat of the tournament as they fell short of three points to hand the Elephants of Ivory Coast a 54-57 baskets victory.

The basketball Lionesses had the better of the early score ratings in the second half of the game, but could not resist an Ivorian side which showed so much character and resilience in the closing stages of the game, to snatch the lead. 

Their defeat adds to the woes of their first game, where they fell to the Palancas Negras of Angola by 78-56 baskets, on Friday August 18, 2017, at the Salamatou Maiga Multipurpose sports complex in Bamako.

However the vice champions of Africa, tipped favourites to win this year’s tournament, are working hard to secure victories in their remaining matches.

The team battled to an impressive 94-42 win over Central Africa Republic to secure their first win in three games on Sunday 20th August 2017, at the Palais des Sports Salamatou Maiga in the Malian capital of Bamako.

Still on Sunday, host nation Mali with the support of home crowd spanked Cote d’Ivoire 61-39 in a tightly contested Group A match to register its second victory.

Cameroon is participating in the 2017 Women AfroBasket tournament in Pool A, housed alongside host nation  Mali, Tunisia, Côte d’Ivoire, Central African Republic and Angola. 

The team has made a total of 10 appearances at the Women AfroBasket tournament in history, with a second place finish in 2015 as their best outing.
