D'Tigers overcome Senegal, set up AfroBasket Final withTunisia
Reacting to this feat on Friday from Tunisia where the country's men's team (D'Tigers) where embarking on their Afrobasket title defence, factional President of Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF) Engineer Musa Kida said the resultant leap into the 34th spot on the global ranking was a direct effort of the new federation to reposition basketball.
This has set up a final clash between D'Tigers and the Tunisians.
However, this year, they were outclassed by the North Africans.
Senegal won the final quarter 26-24 but it wasn't good enough to stop Nigeria from proceeding in the quest to defend the trophy they won in 2015.
US Will Stay in Paris Climate Agreement After All
In June, a newly elected Trump publicly rejected the deal, which he called "unfair at the highest level to the United States". There was a lot of blowback from the global community when Trump announced he was pulling us out of Paris.
Backed by a vociferous home crowd at the packed Salle Omnisport de Rades, Radès, on the outskirts of Tunis, Tunisia used clutch three-point shooting to keep Nigeria at bay in the second half.
Ziyed Chennoufi top scored for the champions, registering 19 points.
The Tunisians won the third quarter 52-40, making it very hard for D'Tigers to get back into the game.
He was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player, headlining the All-Star Five Awards offered by Tissot, where he was joined by Ikenna Iroegbu (Nigeria); Mohamed Hadidane (Tunisia), Mourad El Mabrouk (Tunisia) and Gorgui Dieng(Senegal). The forward recorded a tournament-high 22 points per game and averaged 8.7 rebounds per game at the 16-team FIBA Africa's most important competition. Tunisia also played the tournament without Salah Mejri, a 7-foot-2 centre for the Dallas Mavericks.
