With the D’Tigers still searching for their first win at the on-going 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia, Ike Diogu has appealed for total support from Nigerians ahead of their final game against Australia on Monday.
The D’Tigers captain who currently plies his trade with Sichuan Blue Whales in the Chinese Basketball Association organized league said irrespective of their losses, the boys are still united and determined to make the country proud.
The player who was named the Most Valuable Player of the 2017 FIBA Afrobasket tournament after averaging 22 points and 8.7 rebounds urged the fans to give them the total and unflinching support needed.
“We are determined as ever to ensure that we win a medal for Nigerian basketball lovers despite our slow start to the tournament; all we need is their support and understanding.”

D'Tigers vs Canada at the Commonwealth 
Games in Austrailia
According to him, the team will be buoyed by the recent fans reactions that trailed their losses to New Zealand and Canada to attack Australia with every weapon in their armory.
Diogu who weighed in with 29points in the last game said, “As the leader of this team, I will not attempt to make any excuses for our performances so far, but for those who have been following our pre-tournament preparation, they will be aware of the challenges the team faced. 
Our game against New Zealand was the first time that the team played together in a competitive game while some of the players had just 3 training sessions with the team while 2 players joined less than 72 hours to our first game.”
The final group game between D’Tigers and Australia will have Prince of Wales (Charles Philip Arthur George) who is currently on a working visit to Australia in attendance.
