''This man standing here, Iddrisu Gamel? I've seen him officiate at the AfroBasket in Lagos and he even officiated the final game. There's so much we can learn from him. Let's make use of him while he's still here'' Coach Lawal stated bluntly with a lot frustration.

During the event Iddrisu Gamel who is also a FIBA Africa match commissioner, took participants through a video session of some of the most controversial calls that are made in the league; mainly 3 seconds, back-courting, use of contact and on-court behavior by coaches and players.
