Olympic Qualifying Tournament: Senegal Appoints New Coach For D’Tigress


Ahead of the 2024 Olympic Games qualifying tournament, Senegal has appointed Carlos Alberto Antuna as the new head coach of their Women’s basketball national team.

Since finishing second behind Nigeria’s D’Tigress at the 2023 Women’s Afrobasketball Championship, Senegal has been without a coach after the sack of the former haeda coach.

Before moving to Senegal, Carlos Alberto Antuna, has worked as the coach of the Ugandan team.

National technical director, Raoul Toupane of the Senegal Basketball Association announced on Thursday morning

“There were several foreign and local candidates who applied. But we wanted to choose the best profile.”

The Lionesses will play an Olympic qualifying tournament next February and they are in the same group with the United States, Nigeria and Belgium.
