Nigeria’s men’s basketball national team, D’Tigers, will have the full compliment or their squad for today’s second game of the 2017 Men’s AfroBasket in Tunisia and Senegal as Washington Wizards centre Daniel Ochefu joined the team in the early hours of Saturday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
National Basketball Association star Ochefu is one of 12 players that made the cut for the defence of the title Nigeria won in 2015 and he has arrived in the team’s camp in Tunisia ahead of the game against Mali on Saturday.
“UPDATE: Daniel Ochefu (@DanielOchefu32) is now with the team in Tunisia and is expected to play in Nigeria’s upcoming game,” @nigeriabasket informed early Saturday morning.
