    This team is surely destined for greatness. Too much star players in the team. The Coach is just so perfect for the team. A No-nonsense coach. His son Jordan Nwora is a joy to watch. He’s the starlet of the team. The experienced duo of Captain Diogu and Aminu only should give one confidence. Not to talk of Nnamdi, the high-flying Dunk master Ireogbu and Powerful guard Uzoh. So sad I will definitely miss watching the games live but I’ll surely follow them during the tournament. All the Best to the African Champs D’TIGERS!!

      Look out for Vinceht Nnamdi too. He’s a three – point wizard. Wheres Chamberlain Oguchi? That guy .. we will really miss him

    I wish this team all the best. I hope they replicate what they did in Africa and the 2019 Peak International Invitational Tournament with clinical finish in scoring. Pick 2 points as often as possible and get 3 points decisively without loosing chances couple with following after rebounds. All the best!
