D’Tigers camp opens Nov 23 in Kigali



The Nigeria Basketball Federation has announced that final camping for the 2021 FIBA Afrobasket qualifiers will commence on November 23.

The NBBF Secretary General, Afolabi Olabisi said players are expected to fly into Kigali from their various bases.

On the duration of the final camping exercise, NBBF President, Ahmadu-Musa Kida said the federation would have loved to have a longer final training camp for the qualifiers, but due to the prevailing factors, camp will have to open four days before the team’s first game.

The NBBF President explained that the financial implication on the federation also discouraged any attempt to embark on an extended final camping exercise.

The team is grouped alongside host Rwanda, Mali and Algeria who recently withdrew from the qualifiers taking place between November 27 and 29 in Kigali.
