Arrow 2013 FIBA Africa Championship

This has been a fun tournament to watch the last few times and the level of play is higher than you'd expect. This edition is being hosted in Abidijan, Ivory Coast. Angola has traditionally been a powerhouse in the region but recently teams like Tunisia, Nigeria, and Ivory Coast have emerged as contenders. The top 3 teams qualify for the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

Some familiar names competing in this tournament:
Al-Farouq Aminu
Luc Mbah a Moute
Ike Diogu
Gani Lawal
Saer Sene
Hamady N'Diaye
