D’Tigers camp will open on Saturday in Abidjan as the team start preparation for window four of the 2023 FIBA World Cup qualifiers. 

The team’s Head Coach, Mike Brown, disclosed this became necessary to address the slow starts in the first two windows when the team lost to Cape Verde. 

According to NBBF media, Brown said knowing the task ahead in the quest to qualify for the World Cup, the team need to get more training under their belt before they face host- Cote d’Ivoire next Friday, August 26 at the 3,500 capacity Palais des Sports Treichville. 

“We are trying to get there earlier to see whether we can have a few more practices to see whether we can get ready to perform at a little higher level in game one. In the last window, things were put together at the last second and we went there right before the first game”. 

He is optimistic that early preparation will make a difference when his players step on the court for their first game. 

“Hopefully, with us getting there a little earlier, getting three or four practices under our belt, it will show a little bit of difference when it comes to playing the games”, Brown said. 

Currently fourth on the table, D’Tigers will play their opener against host- Cote d’Ivoire before facing Guinea a day later. 

On Sunday, 28 August, the team will square up against Angola. The 2023 World Cup is to take place from 25 August to 10 September in Japan, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
