Nigeria's Olympic Basketball Team Is Star Studded
OP: July 11, 2021, 06:43:44 AM
Nigeria's defeat of Team USA in a friendly match before the commencement of the Olympics is historic as virtually no one beats the USA in basketball.

D Tigers, Nigeria's national basketball team are no pushover though.

The 16-man roster features eight active NBA players, namely Precious Achiuwa (Miami Heat), Chimezie Metu (Sacramento Kings), Jordan Nwora (Milwaukee Bucks), Jahlil Okafor (Detroit Pistons), Josh Okogie (Minnesota Timberwolves), KZ Okpala (Heat), Miye Oni (Utah Jazz) and Gabe Vincent (Heat).

Additionally, Michael Gbinije and Ekpe Udoh also have experience in the NBA.

"We've had a very competitive camp and the players have brought a ton of energy to our practice sessions so far," Nigeria head coach Mike Brown said.
