Opponent: ES Rades of Tunisia
Final scores: 96:80
Date: 9th March, 2019
League: FIBA Africa Basketball League
From the scouting report we received before our encounter with the ES Rades of Tunisia, we knew it going to be a very tough match. Nevertheless, we were determined to put in our best.
We had an improvement in total scores within the same playing time though, we conceded more baskets during the game. This is a clear indication that we need to revisit our defensive strategy before our crucial game with the host team (Elan Sportif) tomorrow.
Ibe Abuchi, maintained his position as a top performer. He finished with 22 points, 7 rebounds and 5 Assists. Ocheibi Okpe tidied up with 18 points 9 rebounds & 2 Assists while Umar Garba stepped up his game with 17 points & 3 rebounds.
We refuse to be weighed down due to split milk, we have learnt our lessons and moving on to face the challenge ahead
