Former Husker basketball player Ade Dungadaro is on Nigeria’s national team as it attempts to qualify for that country’s first Olympic team in men’s basketball. After losing Monday’s game to FIBA tournament host Venezuela, Nigeria kept their hopes alive by beating Lithuania 86-80 on Wednesday.

In the two games, Dungadaro has scored 12 points, five rebounds and five assists while averaging 17 minutes a game. Nigeria plays Greece on Friday.
