Red lantern of the group, Morocco must win all three games to hope to qualify. The Atlas Lions (3 pts) begin this return leg qualifying series against the Blue Sharks, this Thursday. A defeat would eliminate Morocco, who finished 4th in the Afrobasket 2017 in Tunisia.
2nd in the group, Uganda (5 pts) can pocket its ticket in case of victory against Egypt. The Ugandans made a strong impression last November with 2 wins out of 3 possible.
But it will not be easy against the Pharaohs who want to consolidate their top rank.
