Defending champions Senegal continued their impressive form at the Women's AfroBasket after thrashing Egypt 93-61.

The Senegalese were already assured of their place in the quarter-finals but did not ease off the gas as they romped home at the Palais des Sports Salamatou Maïga in Mali's capital Bamako.

It means they now boast four victories from four in Group B.

Astou Traoré was the star of the show for Senegal, collecting 26 points in the victory.

Senegal's final group game with Nigeria will now decide the group winners after the latter also preserved their 100 per cent record today.
