somehow:
Na..you can see that only few guys are attempting the rim and they kinda rely on few to attack the rim. They also stopped the movements they had in the first quarter both in countering the Tunisians and attempting accurate 3 pointers.

ok

This game is going out of hand.
Re: Nigeria Vs Tunisia: Afrobasket 2017 Finals by somehow: 7:29pm On Sep 16, 2017
But why play the final in Tunisia sef.. I was expecting the finals to be at a neutral ground. Why not Senegal.

The crowd is actually a winning factor here.

Nigeria should try and host the next edition. The boys did their best, but with the fans behind Tunisia, it wil be difficult.
Re: Nigeria Vs Tunisia: Afrobasket 2017 Finals by jammer777: 7:36pm On Sep 16, 2017
timeout call, 8point game now, are we gonna come back?
Re: Nigeria Vs Tunisia: Afrobasket 2017 Finals by somehow: 7:38pm On Sep 16, 2017
8 points and how many minutes to go?

Seems like one of the lowest scoring matches for Nigeria.

Nigerian players and their nonchalant attitude ... they just leave those guys to shoot free 3's ... Put in more effort, change the defensive strategy, it's not working with this team, too many open 3's.

Because their coach already read the defensive game plan of the Nigerians, some body screens, another makes a run outside, the other player screens the shooter ... bam! 3!

It's okay. Playing North Africans in their home especially in the final is always difficult.

Piainful,the reality is that we took team B to this competition,with the Team A no team in Africa can defeat Nigeria,thanks to the guys,they gave their all,he who fight and run away lives to fight another day.I didn't expect them to go this far,thanks for their committments and love of their country,what should Senegal do?Angola suddenly becomes the 5th best team in Africa.All in all,i am taking positives from Afrobasket 2017 for Nigerians,early preparation,good grade A friendlies should be lined up for next assignments,we should stop our fire brigade appraochs.Thanks

This isn't the problem,we had good opportunity to widen the gap in the first quarter,the second quarter was disastrous,we wasted alot of points near the rim,we couldn't convert more free throws save ike diogu,with more 3 points shots we should have won comfotably,we played with the materials at our disposal,a little bit of early preparation would have helped the team more.The positives is that we have two afrobasket finalist teams in two consecutives edition.Nigeria is blessed,our leaders are our problems,if things are done rightly,my gush,anyhow thank you dtigers.
