Mali, host of the FIBA World Cup Basketball Qualifiers on Saturday night handed Uganda's Silverbacks a second straight loss in a hotly contested game played at the City, Arena: Bamako, Palais des Sports Salamatou Maiga. The Ugandan side led in only the second quarter leading it 16-9, while the Mali side led the first quarter 17-12, third quarter 24-23 and the last quarter 29-25. The game ended 79-76 in Mali's favor.

Rwanda benefited from a FIBA Africa wild card to join the 16-team event. Uganda needs to be in the top three in group B to advance to the next stage. Uganda is grouped alongside hosts Mali, Nigeria and neighbours Rwanda.
In other games played yesterday, Ivory cost stopped Senegal 67-60, Nigeria stopped Rwanda 108-53, while Mozambique stopped Central African Republic 59-52.
