KEN vs NGR Dream 11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details


The Group C Battle between Kenya and Nigeria is one of the most important encounters as Kenya can be in dire straits if they lose and Nigeria will be set to advance for the next round. More about KEN vs NGR Dream 11 will be given below.

KEN vs NGR Dream 11 Prediction

Even if Nigeria is missing all their key players, their depth was at full display versus Mali as clicked on an impressive 18 of the 45 three-pointers, going at 40%. The team also saw significant contributions from debutants, especially Ben Emelogu who lit it up from beyond the arc. On the other hand, Kenya played some sub-par defense in their previous match-up and even though they shot decently at 42%, they couldn’t click on many threes, going 22% from the distance. The Nigerians may have an advantage in this match-up and it will be interesting to see how Kenya is going to respond here.

KEN vs NGR Top Picks

*stats from the last game*
1. Tylor Ongwae
Points: 25
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 04

Tylor can be a scoring threat as he looks for high-quality looks from inside and beyond. He was the most effective player against Cote d’Ivoire as he shot 10/19. Ongwae is a candidate as the Super-Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario.

2. Ben Emelogu
Points: 18
Rebounds: 08
Assists: 04
Ben was feeling his shot in the last game and poured down some long-distance, going at 6/10. He didn’t look like a debutant for the team and amalgamated pretty well with the lineup chipping in with rebounds and assists as well.

3. Tom Bush Wamukota
Points: 09
Rebounds: 11
Assists: 03
Tom can be an effective inside player while also gobbling up rebounds at a high clip. Wamukota needs to be more sturdy on the offensive end for his team to have a chance.

4. Stephen George Domingo
Points: 16
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 02
Stephen is a three-point machine and he nailed four of his twelve attempts in the last game. Stephen can also play defense and be a great rebounder.

5. Ikenna Ndugba
Points: 08
Rebounds: 02
Assists: 09
Ikenna landed some pretty dimes as the shooters around him benefitted from his unselfish play. Ndugba also buried two out of their three-pointers.

06. Okall Koranga
Points: 04
Rebounds: 08
Assists: 01

07. Tarakeyi Andrew Edogi
Points: 05
Rebounds: 12
