CAIRO (FIBA Africa Champions Cup for Women 2016) – Here are the two games of the FIBA Africa Champions Cup to look forward to on Friday at Al Alhy Arena in Cairo, Egypt.
The clash between Tunisian champions Club Africain de Tunis and hosts Al Ahly Sporting club is the must-watch game of the day. Not only because Tunisian and Egyptians are both title contenders, but also because it will bring some of the best performers in this year's FIBA ACC.
As both teams will enter this contest on the back of two blowout wins over Kano Pillars of Nigeria and Cameroon's Nzui-Manto, respectively, this will be a real test for either side.
And the winner of this match-up will see their chances significantly increased to finish on top of Group A.
At first glance, Al Alhy emerge as favourites, especially because of the presence of their rowdy home crowd.
Players to watch: Ibrahim El Gammal and Markeith Cummings (Al Alhy). Kyle Vinales (Club Africain)
Association Sportive de Sale (Morocco) v BEAC Basketball (Cameroon)
AS Sale made a tremendous statement by beating Recreativo do Libolo in their Group B opener. With Moroccan internationals Abdelhakim Zouita and Soufiane Kourodu playing at such high level, but more importantly, if Brandon Freeman continues to make three-pointers the way he did on Wednesday, this could be AS Sale's second straight win.
