D'Tigers get D win

From allAfrica.com, this news:
Nigeria's national men's basketball team, D'Tigers, got off to a good start yesterday as the 23rd African Nations Cup began in Algeria by beating Cote d'Ivoire 87-56.
You are probably asking "Why should I care about that?"

The answer: Bucknell point guard Abe Badmus, the 2005 PL defensive player of the year, is a member of that Nigerian team, which is coached by former Celtic Sam Vincent and includes a handful of current and former NBA players. According to Bucknell SID Jon Terry, Badmus was eligible to play for the African nation because his mother is Nigerian.

If anyone can find boxscores from this competition, feel free to forward us a link.
