Hosts Tunisia claimed their second FIBA AfroBasket title after beating Nigeria’s D’Tigers 77-65 in Saturday’s final match in Tunis.
Nigeria’s Ike Diogu logged a game-high 20 points but his effort was not good enough to avoid defeat for the Nigerian side who were the defending champions.
Earlier in the day, Senegal had claimed the last spot on the podium, after seeing off Morocco 73-62 in the third-place game.
Diogu was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player (MVP), headlining the All-Star Five Awards offered by Tissot.
Champions coach Mario Palma was also a winner on the last day. He has won the title with #Angola, and now Tunisia.
