The Falcons lost against Egypt with a score of 45–59 on Tuesday after ending the match at the third quarter due to Mohab Yasser, Egypt basketball star, suffering a cruciate ligament.

Thursday’s meeting of the men’s national basketball team against Uganda is the second in the history of the two teams, as they have only met once prior in a friendly match on June 18, 2018, when the national team won 91–75.

This is the last friendly tournament, which is considered within the framework of the intensive preparations before the Falcons play the matches between Lebanon and Indonesia on July 1 and July 4, as part of the third window of the Asian qualifiers for the 2023 World Cup.
