Coach Igor Kovasevic of Cote d’Ivoire has named Nigeria national basketball teams as the NBA/WNBA teams of Africa.
The Serbian whose team lost a quarter finals match (72-56 ) to Nigeria on Thursday at the ongoing 2021 Afrobasket for Women in Cameroon stated the Nigeria Basketball team made of high standard that any opponent on the continent would like to emulate.
He said, “Nigeria is the NBA of Africa; the teams are of very high standard. We like what they are doing and how they have been able to build the teams high up so well. Their organisation is so good and we can see what they are doing.”
Kovasevic and his Ivorian ladies will continue their campaign in the classification matches taking place on Friday in Yaoundé but he is proud of what his players were able to attain.
