Basketball: Aginaldo Neto joins the senior men's team for the first time

Aginaldo Neto is one of the newcomers to the senior men's basketball team. The Angolan base player is among the 14 basketball players chosen by coach Pep Clarós for the pre-Olympic tournament, thus becoming part of the senior men's team for the first time.

However, Neto's name is not the only new addition, with Luís Faial and Macaxi Braz also making their debut in the national team, says Angop.

Aginaldo Neto was part of pre-selections several times, but never made it to the final selections.

Being in training at the NBA Africa Academy, based in Senegal, the 17-year-old base player was selected this year by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA), among the 40 young talents in the world, writes Angop.

For the pre-Olympic tournament, to be held between the 2nd and 7th of next month in Valencia, Spain, 14 basketball players were called up: Gerson Gonçalves, Bruno Fernando, Childe Dundão, Silvio de Sousa, Aginaldo Neto, Teotónio Dó, Macaxi Braz, Luís Faial, Aboubacar Gokou, Eduardo Francisco, Jilson Bango, João Fernandes, Selton Miguel and Jerónimo Luís.

The national team is preparing the pre-Olympic tournament in Portugal. On Saturday he travels to Serbia, where he will play friendly games with local teams, writes Angop.
