Former National Coach of the Women Basketball team in Nigeria (D’ Tigress), Scott Nnaji has warned the Basketball teams of both the Male and the Female to be wary of the European teams.
Nnaji, speaking in a chat with www.brila.net stated that, the both teams will just be relax thinking their fierce rivals and opponents that would give them tough time is the US teams but they never know that, the European teams in this context,have been playing putting their players together not just for the time of the Olympics because they plays most of their championship together. He added that, they have veteran players that they bring back to make sure they participate because those players knows what it takes to be there.
“ Most of the times everybody just feel people from the US is the best not knowing that, if you going to play the European teams you have to know how they play because, that is what we are still lacking. We have the players and the coach but I think we still need more to be able to get to the the level that those ones are because playing in the Olympics is a difficult one but. Most of the European country’s have been playing putting their players together not just for the Olympics they,play most of their championship together, they have veteran players that they bring back to make sure they participate because those players knows what it takes to be there. ”
The men ( D’ Tigers) have ,Germany and Italy among the European teams in their group to contend with.
