The Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF) is optimistic that the men’s national basketball team, D’Tigers, which is preparing for tomorrow’s opening game against Uganda in the 2019 World Cup qualifying series in Mali, will do the nation proud.

The NBBF disclosed the the home-based players that left for Mali last week and their overseas-based counterparts, have intensified their preparation for the game against Uganda, which will set the tone for the team’s over all performance in the competition.

NBBF’s Media Officer, Afolabi Oni said the players were already looking ahead to the championship, where they aim to show that their second-place finish at the FIBA Afrobasketball Championship last year was a minor dent in their character.
