AfroBasket 2017 was the 29th edition of the AfroBasket, a men's basketball continental championship of Africa. The tournament was jointly hosted by Tunisia and Senegal.[1] Angola was proposed by FIBA Africa to host the tournament, an offer declined as the country is holding general elections in the same period.[2]

Tunisia won their second title after defeating Nigeria 77–65 in the final, while Senegal caught the third place by beating Morocco 73–62.[3]
