FIBA WORLD CUP QUALIFIER: Silverbacks to face off against Mali
In a few minutes, the Silverbacks will tip-off their FIBA World Cup Qualifying campaign when they face Mali in the Angolan capital of Luanda. Now the Silverbacks arrived safely in Angola on Thursday after a cash problem looked to have threatened the trip. They held their first training session today at 12pm local time. Early this week, FUBA had announced that the team won’t be travelling after failing to secure funds from the Government. The picture however later changed, with Sports minister Hamson Obua faulting the Federation for failing to meet the government criteria on requisitioning funds for travelling teams.
