D’Tigers coach, Mike Brown hails Chibuzo Agbo’s work rate, athleticism

Head Coach of Nigeria’s senior men’s basketball team, D’Tigers, Mike Brown, has praised Chibuzo Agbo ahead of the team’s camping progresses in California, USA in preparation for the 2020 Olympic Games.

Agbo who is part of the 49-man list invited by the Nigeria Basketball Federation, has been described as an all-round player that has many things to offer the team.

With competition for just 12 slots expected to be keenly contested, Brown said he will be paying special attention to the Texas Tech Raiders guard in the course of the week.

The Golden State Warriors Associate Head Coach said, “Chibuzo Agbo is a young man that I am extremely interested to see and watch closely throughout the course of the week.”

While describing him further, Mike Brown projected the 6ft 7in tall player who is eligible for the NBA draft in 2024 for greatness and the highest level of basketball if he maintains his work rate and development.

“His size, athleticism, his ability to shoot the ball, his strength and his ability to de­fend are very vital to what we expect to see in our players.”

Nigeria is grouped along­side USA, Australia and win­ners of the groups competing in the OQT in Split which includes Croatia, Brazil, Ger­many, Mexico, Russia and Tunisia.

Focus will also be on the Olympics Qualifying Tourna­ment in Belgrade between Do­minican Republic, Italy, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Senegal and hosts Serbia with the win­ner also joining the group in Tokyo.
