Nigeria men basketball team, D’Tigers finally bid this year Olympics bye early this morning after losing 80-71 to Italy in their last group match.

The Nigerian side made impressive runs leading half way into the tie and looking good to earn at least a win after previously losing two earlier matches against Germany and Australia respectively.

D’Tigers defeat of USA and Argentina in pre-Olympic ties had risen hopes in some quarters that the Nigerian side will fly in Tokyo.
