TRIPOLI (Afrobasket 2009) - Mother-luck failed to smile on Senegal Monday in the Africa Union Hall in Tripoli when it lost its second straight game in group-F of the Eight-Final-Rounds to Morocco by 75-73 points.

Senegal who were handed a 72-59 points defeat by Rwanda on Sunday blew its chances of winning its first game in the third quarter when it allowed the Moroccan to rally to a 20-08 points after taking a two points lead into the break of 34-32 points (14-18, 20-14) making the fourth quarter very tasking for them.

Though the FIBA Africa Zone-II country who was accorded a wild card by the continental ruling body, FIBA Africa due to its strong showing in Africa basketball won the last quarter by 31-23 points but it was too late for them as the Moroccans held on after also losing to Cameroon in its group-F opening game on Sunday.

Morocco Mohamad Hacad led the floor with a double double of 18 points, 13 rebounds and gave 4 assist. The trio of Zakaria El-Masbahi, Yunss Akinocho and Younes Idrissi added 17, 12 and 10 points respectively to keep their side hope of qualifying for the quarter-final a big boost.

Morocco will take on rejuvenated Central Africa Republic while Senegal will have a tough time going past Tunisia at the Africa Union Hall in Tripoli.
