D’Tigers of Nigeria fail to keep their 100 percent record in the ongoing 2017 AfroBasket losing to DR Congo 77-83 in their third group A game in Tunis, Tunisia.
Having narrowly defeated Côte d’Ivoire in the opener and cruising past Mali in the second game, D’Tigers fell to a more determined Congo Team to leave Nigeria’s quarter final qualifications in doubt.
Ike Diogu’s 21 points and Iroegbu’s 18 points were not enough as the Congolese side ran away with the victory.
