Nigeria National Male Basketball Team (D’Tigers) Shooting Guard Ikechukwu Nwamu plans to help his side win the remaining games in the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China.

The final round of games in the qualifiers in Group F runs from February 22-24 and is to be hosted in Abidjan, Ivory Coast with Nigeria assured a spot at the World Cup.

Despite winning all nine games, Nwamu is keen to see Nigeria end its run without any losses as the team prepares to play Senegal, host nation Ivory Coast and Central African Republic later this month.

Speaking to FIBA ahead of the games, the newly acquired Fort Wayne Mad Ants player stated a flawless campaign is the target after sealing qualification.

“I think it will go well. We want to continue to play well and look to finish undefeated” Nwamu said.

Nigeria, Angola and Tunisia have qualified to China and two spots remain with Senegal, Central African Republic, Ivory Coast and Egypt from Group E in contention.
