NIGERIA : Omorogbe Jnr confident of Immigration Premier League survival
Newly promoted Kano-based Nigeria Immigration have yet to win a game in the Savannah Conference of the DStv Premier Basketball League, prompting speculation they might not survive the big league's heat, but player Nosa Omorogbe Jnr believes they will survive relegation at the end of the season.
The 21-year-old believes that while they are going through trying times, it's too early to write the club off and there are enough games to turn things around.
Nigeria Immigration currently lie bottom of the table with an 0-3 mark in the Savannah conference. They face Yelwa Hawks of Bauchi in Sunday's week 4 fixtures.
Only renewed efforts could see them avoid being relegated from the tough league and that is exactly what they intend on doing for the rest of the season.
Nigeria Immigration's players and coaching staff have resolved to put in extra work in an attempt to ensure the club survive the tough terrain of the Nigeria DStv Premier which he described as one of the toughest in Africa.
The point guard want his team-mates to see what the club is going through at the moment as its first baptism of fire in the big league after gaining promotion from the National Division One in Kaduna last year.
Omorogbe Jnr, who played a prominent role in Immigration's promotion, has promised to put more work to see that the team's losing streak stops.
He has had stints with such notable clubs in the Nigeria League as Dodan Warriors, Kano Pillars and Nigeria Customs and has also played in Bulgaria's Pro A1 league with CSKA Sofia.
