2021 Afrobasket: Mike Brown Agrees To Lead D’Tigers


Barely two weeks to 2021 Afrobasket competition, head coach of Nigeria’s senior men’s basketball team, D’Tigers, Mike Brown has agreed to lead the team to the tournament.

The NBA Associate coach was appointed as the manager of the team in 2020 after they secured their passage to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics games.

The build-up to the ancient games gave hope to the basketball followers within and outside the shore of the country.

But the results recorded in Japan were not encouraging which eventually cast doubt on the future of Brown staying in charge of the team.

D’Tigers lost all the 3 matches played at the Olympics to the surprise of the supporters and fans of the game

Brown agreed to stay in charge of the team for the Afrobasket competition slated for Kigali, Rwanda starting from the 24th of August.

The Nigeria side is in the same group with Mali, Kenya, and Cote d’Ivoire.
