The Nigeria Basketball Federation-NBBF has expressed sadness over the inability of the Rivers Hoopers Basketball Federation to participate in the ongoing FIBA Africa zone 3 club championship elimination for men.
Speaking on behalf of the board, Adamu Janlong who is the Technical representative on the board said it was rather unfortunate that FIBA said Nigeria will not be able to parade more than 4 teams during the competition.
The federation denied the allegation of any attempt to disqualify and ridicule the Hoopers who were already in Lagos for the championship taking place between 11th and 18th of November.
