Nigeria’s D’Tigers lost to Ivory Coast at the 2022 FIBA World Cup African Qualifiers on Friday night at the 3,500-capacity Palais des Sports Treichville in Abidjan, and put their qualification hopes for next year’s FIBA Basketball World Cup in question.
Friday’s clash was the third between both teams in recent times.

D’Tigres lost 66-78 to Ivory Cost after an imposing performance from Vefessa Fofana who led the game in scoring with 25 points while D’Tigres’ Josh Okogie recorded 23 points.
