In his first public reaction since he was fired on Thursday, August 2nd, Sam Vincent has blamed the Nigeria Basketball Federation for its shoddiness in preparation for the FIBA Women’s World Cup, citing that as a factor that led to his termination.
Vincent posted a message on his Facebook page on Friday, expressing his disappointment that the Nigeria Women’s Basketball Team is being made to suffer for the administration’s seeming incompetence in planning for the event, which is scheduled to hold in Spain next month.
“Forever proud of the 2017, 8-0 record setting Nigeria Women’s team and staff! And highly disappointed by the poor preparation and destruction of the 2018 plan for the World Cup.”
Vincent who is the most successful national team coach ever for the Nigeria Women’s Team, however, promised to release an official statement explaining what transpired during his recent assignment until it was prematurely terminated.
