Tokyo Olympics: D'Tigers on the verge of an early exit.

The men's basketball team of Nigeria known as D'Tigers are facing an upheaveal task of making it to the quater finals of the Tokyo Olympics 2021.

The promising team were one of the favorites in the olymlic event to win a medal for nigeria, but they have not really proved themselves as the giant of Africa in basketball.

D'Tigers were drawn in group B of the basketball tournament with the likes of Australia, Germany and Italy. They lost their opening game on the Olympics to Australia 84 - 67, then lost their second game to Germany 99 - 92 and put themselves on a very tough situation to make it through to the quarter-finals. 

However, Nigeria can still make it to the quarter-finals by defeating Italy in their last game on Saturday and qualify as a third best team. The competition format allows for two of the best third place team to progress to the quarter-finals. D'Tigers stand a chance of an early exit or redemption on Saturday when they face Italy.
