D’Tigers Suffer Another Loss to Crash Out of Tokyo 2020 Olympics

The Nigerian senior men’s basketball team, D’Tigers, are out of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games after losing 71-80 in their last  Group B game on Saturday.

D’Tigers had rounded off their pre-Olympic preparations with impressive wins over the U.S. and Argentina in Las Vegas.

But in Tokyo they have failed to reproduce such scintillating performances, and rather put up epileptic shows in matches they could have even won.

Saturday’s result meant the Italians are headed for the Olympic quarter-finals, ousting Nigeria to clinch that spot.
