Silver Winning D’Tigers Back to Lagos from Tunis Â

first_imgAfter their silver medal exploit at the just concluded 2017 AfroBasket tournament, D’Tigers were scheduled to return Lagos early this morning aboard a Royal Air Maroc flight with the exception of team captain, Ike Diogu, who headed for United States of America due to family commitments.The delegation led by President of the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF), Musa Kida,was expected to arrive the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos at about 3:30am.The 2015 champions who were just in camp for about two weeks before their title defence surpassed their pre-tournament expectations by getting to the finals, defeating continental powerhouses like Senegal and Cameroon in the quarter final and semi final.Although, Tunisia claimed the FIBA AfroBasket title after beating Nigeria 77-65 in Saturday’s Final in Tunis, D’Tigers and their fans still have something to cheer with Diogu awarded the Most Valuable Player Award.The D’Tigers captain who led by example emerged the tournament’s leading scorer with an average of 22 points per game while Nigerian guard Ikenna Iroegbu who made his AfroBasket debut for Nigeria was also named in the tournament’s Best 5.The 34-year old power forward who recorded a tournament-high also averaged 8.7 rebounds per game at the 16-team FIBA Africa’s most important competition.Despite the loss against the host, it will be a tournament to remember for Diogu who was the tournament’s highest scorer with a total of 132 points as he powered the D’Tigers to the finals after emerging as the team’s highest points scorer in four of their six games. Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
