Uganda will face hosts and familiar foes Egypt in the two sides’ first Group E game at the upcoming qualifiers for the FIBA Afrobasket 2021.
The November 27-29 tournament will be played in Alexandria as Uganda’s Silverbacks look to qualify for their third consecutive continental showpiece.
It will be another stern test for Uganda on Day 2 as they go up against Morocco and will wind up the first leg against Cape Verde and will fancy their chances.
The Silverbacks will need atleast one win from the first leg to better their chances of qualifying heading into the second leg that will be played in February next year.
Meanwhile, a team of locally-based players has been training for the past couple of weeks and six are expected to fly to Egypt next week where they will be joined by the foreign-based legion for a residential camp until the tournament.
