Basketball: Foreign-Based Stars To Join Commonwealth Games Camp
The Assistant Coach of D’Tigers, Aderemi Adewunmi says some foreign professionals will be invited to join their counterparts as camping intensifies for the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia.
The coach made this known in Lagos on Monday after the team’s morning training session.
He said the move became necessary to create the right tactical balance for the team.
“Some foreign based players are going to be invited to camp, but I think the bulk of the team will be home based players. We will definitely beef up the team with few foreign based players.”
He praised the players currently in camp for putting in the right attitude and winning mentality in training which he said will brighten their chances of representing Nigeria.
“Some of the boys in camp were either called to camp during the preparation for the 2017 Afrobasket while others went with the team to Tunisia. So, the experience they have gathered so far will be invaluable.”
With Nigeria grouped alongside hosts Australia, New Zealand and Canada, the former assistant coach of the senior women’s national team is optimistic that the team can spring some surprises.
