Reacting to the draw, the NBBF President charged the ladies to aim at the bull’s eyes during the finals of the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup, while promising the team of adequate and proper support, devoid of politics and egocentrism.
“Dear 3 Peat, the World Cup is an avenue to show the world your qualities, skills and your doggedness in the court. My plea is that you have dominated Africa, now is the time to rule the world, go, see and conquer the rest of the world, aim at the bull’s eyes. On our part, we will ensure that you get all what you deserve in order to prepare adequately for the World Cup. Unlike in the past, when those entrusted with administering the game make promises without fulfilling them, this is what the New Face of Basketball has come to correct. We are committed to your welfare and all round wellbeing devoid of politics and egocentrism,” Mark stated.
He also salute the technical crew led by Coach Otis Hughley, for guiding the team on the right path, noting his effort has led the team a step up in the FIBA women’s world ranking.
