Ikechukwu
Diogu
Defending champions of the FIBA Afrobasket for Men made their presence known with the victory over Cote D'Ivoire 78-77, but not with a serious fight. An expected-unexpected result it turned out to be, with the notable change of 95% percent of players who brought the championship trophy to Nigeria. Only captain of the team Ikechukwu Diogu (204-C/F-83, college: Arizona St.) returned to represent his country, leaving the former players absent and replaced with new ones. Current head coach of team Nigeria, Alex Nwora led the team all he could, putting the pieces together, came out victorious, but realized that there is a lot to be done. Most experienced player and captain Ikechukwu Diogu finished with 31 points and eight rebounds while Ike Iroegbu came up with 15 points, one rebound, seven assists and three steals. Okaro Akakume scored the decisive shot with 17 seconds remaining at the fourth quarter to turn the table in favour to Nigeria. Fans are looking forward to a better performance for the D'Tigers on their way to reclaiming the trophy. Nigeria would face Mali today.
