Basketball: Angola defeat Egypt in AfroBasket 2015 quarter-finals

Posted on August 27, 2015

Angola 83-63 Egypt

2013 AfroBasket champions Angola defeated the Egyptian national team 83-63 to progress to the AfroBasket semi-finals.

The Angolans led for the entirety for the match, showcasing their superiority and skill against their opponents.

Egypt had previously defeated Zimbabwe by a 40-point margin in the round of sixteen, becoming the first team in the tournament to break the 100-point barrier this year, but the level of the opposition was simply too high this time around.

This is the second time in three years that Angola have defeated on the way to the title, after they came out on top in a tense AfroBasket 2013 final that ended 57-40 against the Pharaohs.
