Nigeria begins well, beat Egypt
Nigeria's team to the 2015 FIBA Africa U-16 Women Championship holding in Antananarivo, Madagascar yesterday beat Egypt 54-52 in their opening game.
President of the Nigeria Basketball Federation, NBBF Tijjani Umar commended the team for the victory which he described as a good way to relaunch Nigeria into age-grade competition in Africa after a four- year self exile to sanitize the system.
Speaking with the head coach, Adeka Daudu on phone, Umar said, 'it is a learning process and the players should use it very well. They should just remain focused and enjoy the game'.
He reiterated the position of the NBBF that the team is not taking part in the competition to win at all cost but to use it as a platform of getting future players of the senior team.
They are expected to play host Madagascar on Sunday, Zimbabwe on Monday and Morocco on Tuesday to round off the group games.
