West African country, Cape Verde have qualified for 2021 Afrobasket qualifiers holding in Egypt in November this year.
Cabo Verde as they are also known achieved this feat after getting their second win at the Afrobasket invitational tournament in Yaoundé, Cameroon. They beat South Sudan 91-85 on Friday to get the pre-qualification ticket.
The first quarter of the game ended in favour of South Sudan 16-22, but Cape Verde had rallied back to take the second and the third quarter 32-24 and 17-9 respectively.
South Sudanese came back in the last and fourth set to win 26-30 but it was a pyrrhic victory that couldn’t do much to change the complexion of the game.
Cape Verde had defeated Chad in their first game 73-90. They join Morocco, Egypt and Uganda in Group E.
