In a highly contested and thrilling game, Egypt’s under-16 basketball team has been crowned African champions after defeating hosts Mali by just one point.

Egypt’s final match against Mali at the 2015 FIBA Africa U16 Men Championships saw both teams neck-to-neck until the final whistle, when the match ended with the Pharaohs defeating Mali 64-63. The game was similar to the Egyptian and Malian clash in the preliminary rounds, where Mali defeated Egypt 77-75.

Egypt’s Ahmed Khalaf was his team’s top scorer, with 16 points and 16 rebounds under his belt during the game.

Prior to the finals, Egypt had defeated Angola in the semi-finals and Tunisia in the quarter-finals. Egypt won a total of seven games and lost just one to Mali in the preliminary rounds.
