Kenya Morans much improved but lost against Senegal in the AfroBasket qualifier

Feb 19th 2021 Kenya men’s basketball team the Aka the Morans began their final campaign to qualify for the AFRO basket tournament today but lost against Senegal 51-69 .

The Morans who are under the tutelage of Australian coach Liz Mills were a much improved side from the previous qualifier and led the first and second quarter before surrendering in the third.

They play their second match against Angola tomorrow at 11 pm. They finish the qualifier against Mozambique on Sunday from 4 pm.

Kenya just need to avoid defeat against Mozambique who they beat in the first qualifying round in Rwanda and qualify for the tournament.

Three teams from the group of four will qualify for the Africa showpiece to be staged later in the year.

Kenya was last in the tournament in 1993.
