D’Tigers have secured a ticket for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games after beating China 86-73 at the FIBA World Cup game played at the Gyangzhou Gymnasium, China. D’Tigers are Nigeria’s senior men’s basketball team.
The Nigerians pipped African champions, Tunisia to the ticket who had a crucial win yesterday.
Although both teams finished with three wins from five games , D’Tigers got the ticket due to better goal difference.
The Nigerian team earlier failed to get the Olympics ticket from their group after it finished with two losses and a win but eventually booked a place after emerging as the highest-ranked African team at the tournament.
