Nigeria's D'Tigers crashed out of the Rio 2016 men's basketball event after losing 86-68 to hosts Brazil in their final group game on Monday, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
D’Tigers, needing to win their final group game to stand a chance of making it to the quarter-finals failed to keep up with the pace and trickery of the Brazilans.
D’Tigers started with the same team that started the shock victory over Croatia: Chamberlain Oguchi, Michael Umeh, Ebi Ere, Ike Diogu, and Alade Aminu.

They won the first quarter 16-15 but the Brazilians came back stronger in the second quarter to the end the first half 42-31 in favour of the host nation.
D’Tigers came into the third quarter determined to cut shot the lead – and that they did – as they made 21 points as against Brazil’s 17, ending the quarter 52-59.
But Brazil took control of the fourth quarter scoring 27 points as Nigeria could only manage 17.
