Brazil and Nigeria’s Men’s Olympic Basketball teams tip off for the first game in today’s roundball action. It’s a must-win game for both teams. Although both Brazil and Nigeria are tied for last place, they both have an opportunity to advance to the quarterfinals round if Croatia loses to Lithuania tonight at 9:30 PM. It would be the first time that Nigeria has ever advanced to the elimination round of the basketball tournament in the Olympics. Brazil, meanwhile, is fighting for their country and pride–trying to make a last stand in Rio.

Nigeria’s coach Will Voigt has been getting a lot of press since their upset win over Croatia that nobody saw coming, but he’ll be put to the test against a Brazilian team that outclasses his squad in every single category (except for maybe rebounding). To beat the host nation, they’ll need to do an excellent job cleaning the glass and simultaneously keeping their fingers crossed that they hit as many three-pointers.
