Nigeria wins the Gold in Maputo - Sep 19, 2011

Nigeria's D'Tigers on Saturday won the gold medal in the mens Basketball event as the national team defeated their host, Mozambique, 62-57 in the final before a huge home crowd.

D Tigers had defeated Angola, the former African Champions, at the semi-finals to set up the epic encounter with Mozambique while the host defeated Algeria, another tough nut, to qualify for the finals.

The Nigeria Basketball team played a defensive game contesting every ball with their opponent to lead 18-14, 28-24, 46-43 and eventually at 62-57 in the four quarters of the game.

The Mozambican fans started trooping into the Desportivo Sports Centre, Maputo, as early as noon for a match scheduled to start at 8 p.m. but did not begin until 8:30 p.m.

However, the Nigeria team, who were not intimidated by the packed crowd at the indoor sports hall, played their hearts out and eventually won the deserved gold medal.

After the epic encounter, the green-white-green Nigerian flag took centre court as the players and few Nigerians who watched the match celebrated.

President Armando Guebuza of Mozambique, who witnessed the defeat of his team, presented the medals to the Nigerian players.

However, Sani Ahmed, Coach of Nigerias DTigers, says the gold medal won is a mission accomplished through hard work, determination and discipline exhibited by the players.

''We set out to accomplish this mission and I am very happy that we were able to pick the gold medal and also defeat the Angolans in the semi-finals.

Coach Sani said the team would return home and immediately commence preparations for the 2012 London Olympic Games.

Also reacting to the victory, Muktar Khaleh, the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF) Technical Director, said winning the gold medal at stake at the games was an indication that basketball was developing in the country.

Khaleh, a one-time National Team Captain, said the Federations next objective would be to win the African Womens Championship beginning next week in Mali.

The technical director expressed the hope that with the performance of the mens team at the Games, the women would be motivated to perform well in their tournament in Mali.

Mozambique and Nigeria to meet in the Finals - Sep 19, 2011

The Mozambican men's basketball team won its semi final in the 10th All Africa Games in Maputo on Friday night, defeating Algeria by the considerable margin of 68-45.

The Mozambican team was dominant right from the start, offering no chances to the Algerians. The Mozambicans were winning 30-21 at the end of the first half, and the gap just widened during the rest of the match, until Mozambique ended 23 points ahead of Algeria.

In the second semi-final, the hitherto undefeated Angolan team lost to Nigeria by 62-56. The Nigerians took an early lead and finished the first half ten points ahead of the Angolans. The Angolan team clawed something back on the second half, but not enough to avoid defeat.

Mozambique now meets Nigeria for the final on Saturday night, while Angola meets Algeria to decide the bronze medal.
