Ce tournoi est sponsorisé par le Rwanda via son Ministère des Sports et de la Culture (MINISPOC), comme l’a expliqué Richard Mutabazi, Secrétaire Général de Fédération Rwandaise de Basketball (FERWABA).

« Nous n’avons pas assez de sponsors car au Rwanda, beaucoup d’institutions ne s’intéressent pas au basketball. Partout où nous avons demandé le financement, ils ont répondu négativement. Certains disaient que nous sommes venus tardivement et que leur budget est terminé. D’autres affirmant que les matchs de basketball n’ont pas beaucoup d’amateurs pour faire les publicités ».

Cependant, a ajouté Mutabazi « nous avons un partenariat avec l’Hôtel de Golden Tullip de Nyamata qui a accepté de faire la réduction pour les chambres des joueurs. Il y a aussi Kigali Today Ltd qui fait la publicité de ce tournoi ».

Kigali Today est la seule entreprise des medias qui fait la diffusion en direct de tous les matchs de cette grande manifestation sportive. Le déroulement de tous les matchs est transmis en direct en ligne via  ( comme le fait (

Théoneste Nisingizwe, journaliste sportif sur la Télévision du Rwanda (RBA), nous a livré son analyse sur ce tournoi. « Cette compétition attire beaucoup de spectateurs contrairement aux autres matchs de basketball au Rwanda ».

Nisingizwe reste optimiste que les équipes qui représentent le Rwanda dans ce tournoi comme Espoir BCC peut sortir la tête haute. Il s’est basé sur ses victoires des matchs précédents.

Mais les équipes féminines rwandaises sont faibles par rapport aux autres équipes de la région. Elles n’ont enregistré aucune victoire dans ce tournoi qui est à sa 5e journée.

Il est prévu que l’équipe de basketball (féminin, masculin) qui remporteront la victoire dans ces matchs éliminatoires de la FIBA zone 5 auront le ticket de représenter la zone 5 au niveau du continent Afrique.

African Basketball party shifts to Tunisia

Salah Mejri

Salah Mejri

A week ago, Africa celebrated the first-ever NBA game played on the continent held in Johannesburg, South Africa, but in the next two weeks, African basketball stars will travel up North for the 2015 edition of African championship, the Afro-Basket.

The FIBA Africa’s elite tournament will run from 19 to 30 August in Tunisia, and will serve as a qualifier for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

Obviously, there will be no Chris Paul (USA) or Pau Gasol (Spain), but some of the 16 national teams participating in the tournament will be represented by aspiring, current and former NBA players.

Dallas Mavericks new recruit Salah Mejri, who became the first Tunisian to be signed by an NBA team, will be in the spotlight not only for his recent success with Spain giants Real Madrid, but also because the host nation will be competing for its second continental title since 2011.

And, the man who was voted Africa’s MVP player four years ago is expected to take a leading role.

But, Tunisia will face a fierce competition from teams such as Nigeria, Senegal and Angola.

The Nigerians should count with the services of former Los Angeles Clippers Ike Diogu – the team leading scorer and rebounder over the past three years -, Al-Farouq Aminu, who will wear the Portland Trail Blazers uniform in the upcoming season, and will be coached former NBA D-League Bakersfield Jam coach Will Voigt.

Minnesota Timberwolves centre Gorgui Dieng, a 2009 Basketball Without Borders Africa camper turned professional basketballer, is currently Senegal’s most impactful player, and is likely to feature for the team that best represented Africa at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain.

Although Cameroon are among the frontrunners, it remains to be seen whether or not Luc Mbah a Moute will represent his country in Tunisia.

The 28-year-old, along with the National Basketball Players Association, is reportedly disputing Sacramento Kings decision to void his contract for an alleged failed medical physical. The clock is ticking for Mbah a Moute.

No matter who wins this year’s Afro-Basket, one of the biggest winners will be the growth of the game as well the NBA commitment to spread and encourage its players to develop the game in the continent.

Biggest African presence ever in the NBA

Festus Ezali

Festus Ezali

A successful NBA Game held over the weekend in Johannesburg, South Africa, marked a new beginning in the history of the game in Africa.

And, to complete the NBA popularity on the continent, there will an unprecedented nine Africa-born players in the NBA rosters in the upcoming 2015-16 season.

Maurice Ndour (Dallas/Senegal), Salah Mejri (Dallas/Tunisia), Walter Tavares (Atlanta/Cape Verde) and Emanuel Mudiay (Denver/DR Congo) have signed their first contracts with NBA teams, and will be joining Serge Ibaka (Oklahoma City Thunder/Congo), GorguiDieng (Minnesota Timberwolves/Senegal), Luol Deng (Miami Heat/South Sudan), Mbah a Moute (free-agent/Cameroon), and Festus Ezeli (Golden State Warriors/Nigeria).

Yanick Moreira (Angola) and YoussouNdoye (Senegal) have pre-season agreements with the Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs, respectively, and if all goes according to the plans, the number of Africa-born players could reach a record eleven players in a single season.

And, if the NBA Game Africa is to continue, we’ll probably have a chance to see some of the new recruits coming home to show their basketball skills as well.

Just the way, Hakeem Olajuwon did during the exhibition game.

Olajuwon, the best Africa-born NBA player in the history the game so far, stepped on court at the age of 52 to remind everyone what made him an Hall of Famer.

In just 2.14 minutes, the Nigerian stole the show, executing his celebrated Dream Shake move in front of Montenegrin Nikola Vucevic to score his two points for the delight, not only of the sellout crowd at the Ellis Park arena, but also for fans worldwide who tuned into Youtube videos to revive Olajuwon’s greatness.

He reminded us that aa prolific scorer never forgets.

Team World ended up winning by a 101-97 score. Team Africa was led by GiannisAntetokounmpo’s 22 points and Luol Deng’s 20 points and coached by Gregg Popovich.

The growth of the NBA basketball has become even more intense in the past few years, especially with the Basketball without Borders, an FIBA/NBA initiative.

And the NBA Africa came to Africa to stay.

A victory for all in Africa

NBA Player Hakeem Olajuwon

NBA Player Hakeem Olajuwon

There was a game scheduled on Saturday, an historic and perhaps groundbreaking one, the first involving NBA players in Africa, a continent heavy on promise and light on experience and exposure to basketball.

But first came the game before the game. And this one was far more competitive.

Hakeem Olajuwon and Dikembe Mutombo, the greatest players Africa ever produced, were asked by league organisers to come out of retirement and make a cameo in the exhibition. Olajuwon is a Hall of Famer and Mutombo will be enshrined next month.

They would suit up for Team Africa, a squad of players with African blood, against Team World. Their jerseys, along with one belonging to the late ManuteBol, hung ceremoniously in the rafters above the court inside the arena. Therefore: A simple and brilliant request, right?

Brilliant, yes. Not so simple.

Mutombo was receptive. Olajuwon said no. Olajuwon is 52, Mutumbo 49. They are fit and trim, but as basketball players, they were finished. It was not going to happen. Organisers pleaded. The answer, up to the day before tipoff, was no from Olajuwon. Truth be told? Both were afraid of being embarrassed on TV, in front of fans who knew them as legends. Neither wanted to play like chumps.

NBA Legend Hakeem Olajuwon guest plays for Team Africa during the NBA Africa Game 2015 as part of Basketball Without Borders.

And then: Olajuwon weakened. He brought along his two pre-teenaged boys, who never saw him play, and so he agreed.

When they checked in midway through the second quarter wearing their throwbacks – Rockets for Olajuwon, multi-colored Nuggets for Mutombo – the NBA Africa game had its signature moment, its energy, its second-loudest applause of the day.

The biggest bedlam? That burst arrived when Olajuwon reeled back to 1993, executed the Dream Shake that froze NikVucevic, faded and shot a 15-footer that kissed the rim and fell in. Cray-zy. The crowd pounced. Players on both benches jumped.

“I made the move, I made the shot, it went in,” said Olajuwon. “I missed my first shot and was happy to make the next one. And I was really happy to participate.”

After a minute of action, Olajuwon playfully grabbed his chest, Fred Sanford-style. Gregg Popovich, who knows about coaching old players with the Spurs, did the humanitarian thing and allowed Olajuwon to wobble back to the bench and into re-retirement.

We all won. The whole week was a winner.

As for Mutombo? Didn’t one trademark basketball moment deserve another? As in, a blocked shot and finger wag? Popovich drew up a defensive play that you’ll never see in a Spurs game. He ordered his players to allow guard Trey Burke to reach the rim, where Mutombo awaited. The trap was set but the mouse didn’t cooperate. Burke passed the ball.

“So many of these young players don’t want to see themselves on YouTube,” said Mutombo, “so they run away.”

As for the rest of the game: It registered in Africa. It was All-Star Game-like. Lots of dunks, and then three-pointers in bunches in the final five minutes. This was NBA action, finally, in this continent and the crowd treated it as such.

Team Africa lacked a point guard. Didn’t matter. Team Africa also lacked shooters. Well, that mattered when the World rallied in the final moments and pulled ahead. Burke was booed at the free throw line with seven seconds left and Africa down three. Tough crowd.Proud crowd.Biased crowd.

But after the buzzer sounded and the World won, 101-97? Every player in the game was treated like Africans.

“We all won,” said Olajuwon. “The whole week was a winner.”

Yes, absolutely. As Chris Paul said: “The game was secondary to all the great things that took place.”

Where do we start? Maybe at the beginning. On the 16-hour flight to South Africa, Paul passed the time and fought sleep by reading Nelson Mandela’s book, Long Walk to Freedom, on a recommendation from a friend. The book resonated.

“I thought it was fitting for me to read that book on the way over here,” said Paul, “because it gave me a great sense of what he and others have been through in Africa. To me to go to Soweto and then to Nelson Mandela’s house was amazing.”

The youth clinics, run by MasaiUjiri, went smoothly. Meanwhile, the Raptors’ GM, who also holds two basketball camps annually in Africa, was honoured by the Mandela Foundation’s Hall of Fame, his name chiseled on the same wall as Bill Clinton and other dignitaries. It was a defining moment for someone who idolised Mandela, and a confirmation that his constant work to develop basketball in Africa is appreciated by his homeland.

“To receive such an honour, I never thought this would ever happen to me, growing up in Nigeria,” said Ujiri. “It’s life changing. Everything he symbolises is the right way a human being should be. It’s not easy to be selfless, but he was.”

Many players and coaches choked up while visiting the SOS Village, where they were swarmed by orphaned and abandoned children.

Their stories and their plight were heart-wrenching. Lionel Hollins, the Nets’ coach, left with thoughts of adoption.

And speaking of that: Alexis Wangmene was in attendance at the game. He was spotted at a Basketball Without Borders camp in 2004 by R.C. Buford, the GM of the Spurs. Buford and his wife brought the 14-year-old from Cameroon to San Antonio and gave him a home and a new brother, Chase Buford. Long story short: Wangmene prospered, played college ball at Texas and for the last few years played professionally overseas.

“My journey started here, 11 years ago,” Wangmene said. “I met the most wonderful man I know. He changed my life. He’s always been very supportive, very encouraging. I remember first meeting him and him talking to me like it was yesterday. Being here at this game helps bring back all of those memories. Good memories. Coming to San Antonio and being with his family was the best time of my life.”

The purpose of the four-day trip to South Africa, of course, was to stimulate the appetite for basketball in a place that’s slowly producing professional players and hoping that one day, a trickle of talent turns into a gusher. Africa has a billion people but is slower to become a basketball factory, for several reasons, which puts it well behind Europe, Asia and South America. Even Australia has turned into a faucet in relatively short time.

Again: Africa didn’t even have a point guard for Saturday’s game. And over half of the players who suited up for Team Africa were weaned on basketball in other countries.

The main roadblocks are coaching, facilities and resources, although the tireless work of Ujiri and especially Amadou Fall, the NBA’s director of development in Africa, gives some hope.

“Something is going to come from this,” said Fall. “This will grow.”

Here’s what will likely not happen: Olajuwon and Mutombo, huffing their way down the court in an organised game.

“Come on, man, I’m old,” said Mutombo. “Nobody better ask me about playing basketball again. I was out there for five minutes and my chest hurt. It’s not easy out there.”

They sacrificed their limbs and lungs for Africa. And they did something else, Mutombo and Olajuwon. By being Hall of Famers, they helped the NBA field a team of players with African heritage and stage a game on the continent, and the NBA plans to keep the door open for coming back. That’s what pioneers do.

Captain Luol Deng grew up in strife-torn Sudan and soon escaped to America, where he learned the game and attended Duke and eventually became an All-Star. He knew what Olajuwon and Mutombo meant to him during those developmental years.

“As a kid, I never could watch NBA players or see an NBA game because that didn’t happen over here,” he said. “Because of Hakeem and Dikembe, this is why this game happened today. It’s a huge step forward.”

The NBA made sure not to leave out the third player in the African trinity. An MVP trophy was split between Deng and Paul. It was named after ManuteBol, a fitting tribute for the memory of the 7-7 shot-blocker from Sudan.

“God bless his soul,” said Mutombo. “He was a good man for his country. He was good for the game. He would’ve loved to be here. And everyone would’ve loved having him here.”

“When you talk about Dikembe and Hakeem, you talk about two iconic figures,” Pop said. “And to be here in Africa, and roll them out, it makes the whole day special. You could see the players on both teams. They were in awe.”
