NBBF Vice President ‘Tunde Ogunade has stated that the D’Tigers will give their best to ensure a good start to the 2021FIBA Afrobasket championship qualifiers.

Ogunade who led the Nigerian delegation to Rwanda told www.brila.net that the biggest challenge of the team now is the availability of players from the 20 invited for the qualifiers with the withdrawal of Spain based Rasheed Sulaiman through injury and the Covid-19 protocol to other Europe based players who may not be able to make the roster eventually due to lockdown in some parts of Europe.

He however assured that the final 12 whichever way will be good enough to get a good start in this first qualifying window.
