): Nigeria’s Basketball team, D’Tigers, had a short run in the London Olympics as Lithuania
spanks beat i.e. shut it down in a 72-53 win today, against D’Tigers. *Sad face.* Nevertheless, I am very grateful to the team for putting Nigerian basketball on the global map. They made history by getting the nation to the olympics and I believe that they have fueled a desire and passion in the minds of future talented young Nigerian basketball players in Nigeria. I am also excited and can’t wait to see what the future holds for basketball programs in Nigeria. I hope these athletes leverage the publicity they garnered from the Olympics to make an impact in the country.
In the meantime, trust Factory 78’s DJ Lanre and Adesope to bring amazing substantive and great coverage of everything we all want to know within and (in an instance like this) outside showbiz. They snagged an interview with the team about a week before their game against Lithuania.
Check on it and have a healthy and productive day folks. AML artists, y’all get back in studio. Get to work! Execs., Industry, handle it. Let’s make it happen people. Let’s go! Stay focused. Stay on your grind.
