The Zone V Afrobasket Qualifiers kick off today with two games to be played at the Lugogo Indoor Arena.
The Zone V tournament is comprised of Uganda, Rwanda, Egypt, Kenya, and South Sudan.
South Sudan starts their opening match with Egypt at 5:00 p.m., and the Uganda Gazelles take on Kenya at 7:30 p.m.
All five teams will be battling for bragging rights and the top spot to qualify for the Women’s Afrobasket, which takes place July 28th to August 6th, 2023, in Rwanda.
Rwanda has already qualified as hosts, leaving the search for a qualification spot to Uganda, Kenya, Egypt, and South Sudan.
The Afrobasket is finally back in Uganda since 2018, when the last FIBA Zone V basketball tournament was held in Kampala, Uganda.
The Afrobasket Zone V qualifiers will be covered live on NBS Sport TV and live on Afromobile.
