The players who are all foreign-based sang a popular gospel Nigerian song ‘A very big God’ as they marched into the arena to face the number three ranked team in the world.

Though the West Africans were thrashed 108-67 on the night, but the honour given to the late songwriter and musician was the order of the day.

Impressive run before Olympics

D’Tigers have been on a winning streak since Brown took over the team in 2020 and their biggest wins under the American coach was in their last two games against the United States and Australia.

The win over the US is the biggest in the nation’s history following a 90-87 scoreline, sweet revenge for the 156-73 loss at the London Olympic Games in 2012.
