Nigeria vs Cameroon Preview

 
Fans at the Salle Omnisport de Rades expect a thrilling quarterfinal duel between defending champion Nigeria and Cameroon in the Afrobasket on Thursday.

The Nigerians topped Group A with a 2-1 record. D'Tigers actually finished in a three-way tie with DR Congo and Mali but had a superior points difference over the other teams. Nigeria beat Cote d'Ivoire (78-77) and Mali (90-67) and lost to DR Congo (77-83).

Leading Nigeria in its quest to return to the medal round is former NBA player Ike Diogu, who averaged a tournament-best 22.3 points and 6.3 rebounds in the group stage.

Young guards Ike Iroegbu, Bryant Mbamalu and Ike Nwamu are also scoring options for head coach Alex Nwora while veteran center Jeleel Akindele will take care of the boards.  

Cameroon, meanwhile, placed second in Group C. The Indomitable Lions lost to Tunisia 51-68 in their opening game but bounced back with victories over Guinea (96-54) and Rwanda (81-77).

Young gun Ben Mbala is a marked man for the Cameroonians after the Philippine-based forward averaged 18.3 points and 9 rebounds in the group phase. Center Francois Affia Ambadiang, Felix Bogmis and Franck Yangue are also out to impress head coach Antonio Barbosa.

Cameroon last reached the semifinals of this competition in 2009.

Whoever wins this game will take on either Senegal or Angola in the semifinals. Nigeria beat Cameroon 91-84 in the 2013 Afrobasket with Diogu leading the charge with 25 points and 15 rebounds.
