D’Tigers guest Chima Moneke has revealed how he felt after being named to the 2021 FIBA ​​Afrobasket provisional 20-man roster.

Moneke told the NBBF media that he cried after the invitation from the Nigerian Basketball Federation.

The power forward who plays for Orléans Loiret Basket in France recalled that he could not control his emotions.

“I cried when I got the call. I called all my friends, the people I love, the people who care about me and were very proud of me and most importantly my parents. They cried, I cried.

“I knew they would be excited because representing my country is probably more important to them than being in the NBA if I ever get the chance to do so. It was an incredible moment, I didn’t expect it and it made it sweeter. “

On his hopes of breaking into the national team, Moneke said that with his deep knowledge of the team as a fan; fitting in will not be difficult.

“I have a lot of knowledge about the team. I am Nigerian from start to finish. I was born there and grew up. My parents are Nigerian and all my brothers are Nigerian ”, added the player.
