2017 Afrobasket: Tunisia defeat Nigeria to be Champions

The Carthage Eagles of Tunisia claimed their second FIBA AfroBasket title after beating D'Tigers of Nigeria 77-65 in Saturday's Final in Tunis, Tunisia.

Zied Chennoufi led the way with team-high 19 points in the winning cause.

Meanwhile, Ike Diogu sparked former defending champions Nigeria with game-high 20 points and 10 rebounds but his effort was not good enough to avoid defeat.

Earlier in the day, Senegal claimed the last spot on the podium, after seeing off Morocco, 73-62, in the 3rd-Place Game.

Diogu was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player, headlining the All-Star Five Awards offered by Tissot, where he was joined by Ikenna Iroegbu(Nigeria); Mohamed Hadidane (Tunisia),Mourad El Mabrouk (Tunisia) and Gorgui Dieng(Senegal).
