Following their defeat yesterday, which ended their three-game winning streak in the Basketball Africa League (BAL), Rivers Hoopers of Nigeria are determined to bounce back in their upcoming match against APR of Rwanda.

The loss to hosts AS Douanes of Senegal with a narrow margin of 54-56 points has left the Rivers Hoopers analyzing their performance and strategizing for their next game. Coach Ogo Odaudu highlighted several mistakes made by the team during the match, emphasizing the need for improvement in key areas.

One of the major factors contributing to their struggle, according to Odaudu, was their slow start in the game. Additionally, the team's performance in free throws was below par, with Odaudu noting that they missed several opportunities from the free throw line.

Another area of concern was the high number of turnovers committed by the team, totaling twenty turnovers throughout the game. Furthermore, the team conceded a significant number of offensive rebounds to their opponents, further complicating their chances of securing a victory.

Despite these setbacks, Odaudu remains optimistic about the team's prospects in their upcoming matches. He emphasized the importance of learning from their mistakes and ensuring that similar errors are not repeated in future games.

Looking ahead, Rivers Hoopers are focused on their next match against APR of Rwanda. With their eyes set on redemption, the team is determined to put in a strong performance and secure a much-needed victory to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Following the APR game, Rivers Hoopers will face Tunisian side US Monastir in their final game of the reverse stage. As leaders of the Sahara Conference, the team understands the significance of these matches, with the top two teams in the standings advancing to the 2024 BAL playoffs in Kigali. Therefore, every game is crucial for Rivers Hoopers as they aim to secure their spot in the playoffs and compete for the BAL championship title.
