Nigeria will try for the bronze

From a report of the first semifinal of Afrobasket Women 2011: "Not even the vociferous fans and top government functionary could save the host Mali from losing to determined Angola by 51-56 points."

The only thing reported so far of the second semifinal is that Nigeria lost to Senegal 63-89.

So Mali and Nigeria will compete tomorrow for the bronze medal and an opportunity to compete for a spot in the 2012 Olympics. I expect that the vociferous fans and government functionaries will still be rooting for Mali. Good luck, Ros!
