#Rio2016: Argentina’s Basketball Team Humbles African Champions, Nigeria

By  | 

The Argentine national team began their Olympic campaign on an impressive note by defeating Nigeria in all sets to complete an emphatic 94 – 66 victory.

Argentine veteran Manu Ginobili caused the Nigeria’s defence all sort of problems through out the duration of the game, racking up several 3 points in the process.

Nigeria’s trio of Oguchi, Ebi Eri and Diogo  gave a good account of themselves but the Argentina didn’t hand the African Champions any opportunity to steal the game, as they maintained their lead throughout the duration of the game.

Croatia stole a narrow victory from the noises of their European rival Spain, winning the game with two points, as the game ended 72-70 in favor of the Croatians.
