Kenyans have taken to social media in numbers to congratulate the Kenya Men’s basketball team, Kenya Morans following their stunning display at the ongoing FIBA AfroCan 2019 tournament in Bamako, Mali.

This is after they beat Morocco 96-66 to book a slot in the Saturday final where they are scheduled to face Democratic Republic of Congo, who topped Angola 84-78.

Kenya settled for second best behind the Congolese in group B after they went down (82-65) in their opening match.

They, however, bounced back from their nightmare start by thrashing Nigeria 81-69 in their second group game.

The rejuvenated Kenyans then edged Ivory Coast 85-83 in the round of 16 before seeing off favourites Tunisia in a thrilling quarter-final clash which they won 82-76 through overtime.

Despite their stunning heroics, the Morans weren’t done yet as they sent a stunning message to DRC by beating Morocco 96-66 to book a spot in the final against their fierce group B rivals.
