Zimbabwe and Zambia to host FIBA AfroBasket 2017 Zone 6 Qualifiers - Feb 9, 2017

Eight teams from FIBA Africa's Zones 6 and 7 will battle it out in Harare and Lusaka for two places in the Final Round of FIBA AfroBasket 2017. The draw took place on Wednesday in Maputo, Mozambique. While the Zambian capital Lusaka will see Angola, South Africa, Madagascar and the host nation competing in Group G, Harare is set to be the backdrop for Group H, which includes Mozambique, Seychelles, Botswana and hosts Zimbabwe. Both Seychelles and Madagascar are members of FIBA Africa Zone 7 but have been drawn in Zone 6. Group G will be played from 12-18 March, while Group H will run from 19-25. The qualifiers will be played in a round-robin format with each team taking on its two opponents. The winner of each group will secure automatic qualification for Africa's flagship competition taking place in Brazzaville, while the teams that finish second in Groups G and H will face each other for the remaining qualification spot. Zambia, who last featured in the Final Round of the continental event in 1989, are looking at the Qualifiers as an opportunity of changing the course of their basketball history. Zimbabwe, meanwhile, ended a two-decade long absence from FIBA AfroBasket two years ago when they played in Tunisia and returned home with a 0-5 mark.

Motivation in Players and Coaches - 3 months ago
In every team sport, there are players who never achieve greatness as players but become immortal as coaches. If there is a secret to success as a coach, it would most probably be that the best coaches can motivate players better than others can. Motivation is a major factor in any success story. If you're trying to succeed in any intensely competitive field, motivation is what gets you up in the morning ready to go again. But motivation is also what gets you to go to sleep at night when...   [read more]
