The 30th edition of the FIBA Afrobasket concluded in Kigali, Rwanda with Tunisia retaining their title on Sunday.

The North African giants edged out a hard battling Ivory Coast 78-75 to keep the crown they won four years ago.

Kenya, who were making a return to the grandest stage of African basket in 28 years, exited the tournament at the pre-quarters stage after narrowly losing to new kids on the block South Sudan.

The team’s coach Liz Mills, who led the qualification, became the first woman head coach at the Afrobasket, earning special recognition.

Also fated by FIBA were Tunisia’s Benramoudane and Cote d’Ivoire’s Stephen Konate for having played in many Afrobasket competitions.
