Nigeria’s D’Tigers defeats Mali


- Advertisment -

Nigeria’s D’Tigers has intensified its dominance in the game of basketball in Africa as the team defeated Mali in the basketball event at the ongoing All Africa Games in Congo Brazzaville.

The team which comprises of eight domestic basketball players from Mark Mentors and Kano Pillars baksetball clubs and a foreign based professional, Olumide Oyedeji, defeated their opponents seventy-six points to fifty-nine, in its first group game played today.

The feat has made the nation’s domestic basketball players to justify their inclusion in the final list of the Games, as they were excluded from the squad that represented Nigeria at the just concluded Afrobasket in Tunisia.

Head coach of Mark Mentors, Peter Ahmadu, expressed happiness for the feat achieved by the home based D’Tigers, stressing that the victory was a plus to the Nigerian basketball league coaches and the sponsor of the Nigerian Basketball League, Multi-Choice Nigeria.

Nigeria’s D’Tigers recently broke a jinx after defeating Angola in the Afrobasket in Tunisia to book a ticket for the Rio twenty-sixteen Olympic Games as the team comprises of Nigeria’s professional basketball players.
