Nigeria’s D’Tigers have been eliminated from the men’s basketball event of the 2015 All Africa Games.
The Afrobasketball champions met a strong resistance in emerging powerhouse of African basketball, Egypt, who narrowly defeated D’Tigers 61-60 in a closely fought semi-final at the Makelekele Sports Centre Wednesday night.
Despite some questionable calls by the arbiters, the Nigerian dunkers should have themselves to blame for their inability to pick the game.
Time and time again, D’Tigers failed surprisingly though, to take advantagd of the several free throw opportunities they got while the Egyptians made a far better success of theirs as well as scoring on fast breaks with effortless ease.
D’Tigers will now be left to scramble for the bronze medal in the third place match.
