President of the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF), Engineer Musa Kida strongly believes that the Women’s Senior National team, D’Tigress, will fly the country’s flag high and give a good representation of Africa when the 2018 World cup tips off in Spain.
Kida says the crop of players currently in camp in Lagos state are the best set of players that are available to Nigeria across the globe.
Speaking on Monday which marked exactly one year D’Tigress won the 2017 Afrobasket championship in Mali to qualify for the World Cup in Spain, the NBBF president maintains he is hopeful of a good performance.
He says despite the 2017 set going on an eight (8) game unbeaten run to clinch the Afrobasket title after 13 years of endless wait, the present set of players are an upgrade of the 2017 team.
“I think this is one of the best women’s team that we have, going to such a tournament. And I am also very hopeful and quite encouraged by what I have seen them do.”
In addition, he assures that the federation will work closely with the Technical crew to ensure that the best players are picked from the pool available, to represent the country at the world cup.
Kida reaffirms Federation’s commitment to basketball stakeholders
Kida restates the NBBF’s commitment to giving all the support necessary to the team to put up an excellent show when the world cup starts on Saturday, 22nd of September in Tenerife, Spain.
“My commitment to the country and basketball stakeholders is that we are going to put up a very excellent show, so let the game begin!”
