Nigeria’s D’Tigers suffered their second defeat at the 2019 FIBA Men’s World Cup in China as they fell 94-81 to Argentina at the Wuhan Sports Centre yesterday.
At the end of the first quarter D’Tigers were down 28-17 before they tied the game 43-43 at half-time.
They, however, went further down 72-61 in the third quarter before they rallied to get 81 points which wasn’t enough to defeat the Argentines.
Nigeria will next face Korea in their last Group B match on Wednesday.
