The Nigerian Minister of youth and sports development, Sunday Dare, has hailed the Nigerian male basketball team for their comfortable win over 4th seeded Argentina.

”I salute and commend their patriotism and the courage and confidence they have brought to the game. You continue to make Nigeria proud,” Dare said.
