Cameroon fortune in the Afrobasket took a downward trend in recent time after an impressive silver medal finish at the 2007 edition in Angola but one player who is likely to feature in the 2015 edition of the biennial championship Luc Mbah a Moute believed the side is capable of regaining same feat in Tunisia.

Speaking with FIBA shortly before the first NBA Africa Game at the Elis Park Arena in Johannesburg, South Africa Mbah a Moue says Cameroon of 2015 is a different team from the one that finished 11th at the 2013 Afrobasket in Cote d'Ivoire.

The six feet eight inch forward warned other countries to beware of Cameroon performance when the 2015 edition tip-off on August 20 in Tunisia.

Cameroon will be making its eighth appearances in Tunisia after debuting at the 1972 championship in Dakar, Senegal where it finished eight of the twelve countries in attendance.

"Our goal is to be at the RIO 2016 Olympic Games as we are more determined this time, since our second place finish in 2007 we have not really shown that we are ready to fight for the Afrobasket tittle but we are much prepared this time.

"We recognize that there are several countries in Africa at the moment with good basketball pedigree but that will not deter us from achieving air set objective to win a direct ticket to the 2016 Olympic Games.

"The game is really growing at a faster rate in Africa and we want to applaud the good works of FIBA Africa with the full support of FIBA world in this regard.

Mbah a Moute is expected to play an important role in Cameroon quest for honour in Tunisia being one the foremost player in the Lions line-up.

Cameroon is grouped alongside five-time champion Egypt, Gabon and Mali in group-C of the 2015 Afrobasket.
