D'Tigress National Team
The Technical Committee of the Nigeria Basketball Federation has announced that the Women's senior National team D'Tigress will be in close camping for the FIBA Afrobasket Women's Championship until their departure on the 16th of August 2017.
This became imperative following the request by the team’s Technical crew led by Sam Vincent with just few days to start of the championship which starts on the 18th.

The decision became imperative following their third friendly against Raptors Men Basketball Club on Saturday in which they lost by 78 points to 53 at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium, Lagos.
According to the federation, the decision is to beef up preparations and perfect their technical and tactical plans for the championship after some lapses were noticed at the end of their third game.
Speaking on behalf of the federation, the Vice President, Babs Oguande explained that, “This decision is in the best interest of all parties involved. The team is now at the business end of their training and it is expedient they perfect their plans during this camping exercise before we travel on Wednesday.”

This decision means the team on Monday and Tuesday will train behind closed doors with fans and journalists barred from having access to their morning and evening training sessions.
“At this crucial time of their training, they cannot afford not to have the maximum level of concentration. We are going to leave no stone unturned just to ensure that we at the federation level play our part in ensuring that they girls are trained in the best condition available,” Oguande concluded.
The team will hold an open session with members of the press after their training on Tuesday before departing for Mali.
