CPV vs UGN Dream 11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details, 2 September


The AfroBasket is now reaching its concluding stages and the exciting tournament has seen a ton of surprises so far. In this Quarterfinals game, the winner between Cape Verde and Uganda will take on the winner between the Tunisia and South Sudan match-up. More information about CPV vs UGN Dream 11 will be given here.

CPV vs UGN Dream 11 Prediction

Cape Verde has a great mix of guards and frontline players but it is their Forward-Center lineup that inflicts most of the damage. They topped their group and now will look to pursue further glory in this crucial match-up. Uganda is coming off a win against Nigeria and they rely a lot upon the three-ball. For Uganda, containing Walter Taveres and can be a huge problem as they are outmatched in that sphere. Cape Verde does have the edge in this match-up but not by much and it will not be a surprise if Uganda brings them down through their consistent ball movement.

CPV vs UGN Top Picks

(Last Match Stats)

Walter Tavares
Points: 14
Rebounds: 14
Assists: 02
At seven foot three inches, Walter is a matchup nightmare and uses his humungous wingspan to finish inside and also pull down rebounds while changing the directions of shot on defense. This is one of the reasons why is averaging 14.3 PPG, 14 RPG, and 4 BPG!

Ishmail Wainright
Points: 11
Rebounds: 11
Assists: 06
Ishmail is a busy player who likes to contribute in all areas. He is a brilliant scorer from inside-outside, he can find open players using his excellent vision and passing and then he rebounds like a big-bodied player. Wainright is averaging 12.5 PPG, 9.8 RPG, and 7.0 APG, making him a viable fantasy option all day.

Joel Almeida
Points: 16
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 04
Joel likes to light it up from distance but that is not all to his game. He can also rebound during important moments and has the knack for finding open players for easy buckets.

Arthur Kaluma
Points: 11
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 03
Arthur is a physical player who can finish through bodily contact but he also has a sweet stroke from outside. Kaluma also works hard on the defensive and rebounding end.

Jeffrey Nunes Xavier
Points: 12
Rebounds: 16
Assists: 06
Jeffrey is a 6’1 PG but plays a lot bigger than his size. He is one of the best passers in the tournament and can put his foot down for scoring as well. His rebounding abilities and court awareness make him an ideal player. He has lodged averages of 12.7 PPG, 5.7 RPG, and 5.3 APG.

Robinson Opong
Points: 19
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 02
Leave Opong open from long-range and he is making you pay, a lesson that the Nigerians must have learned in the last game. Opong is averaging 14 PPG and has made 13 out of 30 threes in four games.

Ivan Almeida
Points: 08
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 03
Averaging 11.7 PPG, 5.7 RPG, and 4.0 APG.
