D’Tigress’ #FIBAWWC journey comes to an End after Loss to USA



The Nigerian women’s basketball team D’Tigress‘ journey has come to an end at the ongoing FIBA Women’s World Cup in Spain.

The team wowed the whole world after winning three matches consecutively in the tournament.

D’Tigress, after defeating Turkey, Argentina and Greece, became, not only the first African team to win a match or advance past the group stage in the world cup, but also the first to advance to the Quarter Finals.

The team lost to the United States of America 40 – 71 on Friday.

We wish them all the best and congratulate them for making the country proud!

    From the result. is apparent that they did extremely well. The US team has been averaging over 90 points per game in the competition so far. So for our girls to hold them to 71 points meant they could have gotten past this stage with another opponent in tow other than the US.
    Females always making us proud in sports yet the sport handlers commit less attention and support to them. Go D Tigress
