Afrobasket 2021 (Male): Cape Verde surprises Angola

Afrobasket 2021 (Male): Cape Verde surprises Angola

 

Cape Verde's second game in Group A of the Afrobasket 2021 on Tuesday 24 August was a thriller. The suspense will have lasted until the end of the game. We had to wait until the last seconds to see a winner as Cape Verde  won (77-71). The Cape Verdeans snatched the victory in the final minutes of the fourth quarter.

The two teams were neck to neck. They were even tied in the first quarter (14-14) but the Palancras Negras went into the locker room with an eight-point lead (26-34). They came back and managed to maintain their lead until the end of the third quarter (55-49).

Led by an excellent Walter Tavez (20 points), the Cape Verdeans went on a 17-11 run in the fourth quarter and finally won. The 21 points of the experienced Carlos Morais did not prevent the fall of the 2013 African champion.

Angola challenges tournament hosts Rwanda on 26 August while Cape Verde meets DR Congo.
