Play-Off bracket1
Kenya men routed 86-47 by Egypt - relegated to caliber of Somalia - Mar 17, 2017

Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi now the countries challenging Egypt for top honours in Fiba Zone 5 African basketball. KENYA men were bundled out of the Zone 5 AfroBasket 2017 qualifiers in Cairo on Wednesday evening, their severe 86-47 rout by home team Egypt underlining the very low standards of the Kenyan sport. The team thus lost all their Group 'A' matches of the championships; earlier defeats being an emphatic 76-60 by Rwanda and a shocking 66-68 loss to South Sudan who were playing their first international tournament. Kenya have now been relegated to classification play-offs condemning them to the caliber of Somalia whom coach Carey Odhiambo 's men play next in the non-consequential 'rubber' on Friday. Meanwhile, semi-finalists include Uganda who were unbeaten in Group 'B', Rwanda who were runners-up to Egypt in Group 'A' and Burundi who were second in a three-team Group 'B'. The two teams in the final will earn places in the AfroBasket 2017 men's championship in Brazzaville, Congo (August 19-30). Being overtaken by Burundi, Rwanda and Uganda just questions the future of Kenya's men's basketball. After matches in the three-team round-robin event for women, Egypt beat both Uganda (86-56) and Kenya (87-62) to top the table and earn the single place to the AfroBasket 2017, Mali (September 15-24). Kenya's win for a second place was a 70-41 upset of Uganda. Fixtures indicate return matches but in any case, Egypt have already booked their place in the African championships.
