Coach Ayo Bakare has revealed that Nigeria’s national male basketball team, D’Tigers, will close down their defence against Congo in their second group game of the 2013 Afrobasket on Friday, as the side concentrated on the defensive aspect of the game all through Thursday’s training.

Coach Bakare identified the team’s defence as their weakest link going by Wednesday’s result at Palais des Sports de Treichville where Mali were allowed to shoot freely from the perimeter.

The coach said “we are not going take chances at all” against Congo who lost their opening match 74-43 to Cameroon and hopes the players will rise up to the challenge.

With the absence of some key figures like Richard Oruche, who picked up an injury during Wednesday’s game against Mali, Bakare expects to rotate the squad to present playing opportunities to others.

Meanwhile, Cameroon will battle Mali in the second group match today (Friday) as the Malians are bent on tackling the Central Africans known for their physicality.
