Nigeria’s D’Tigress will go down in history as an underrated 34th placed African Nigerian team which came to a FIBA Women’s World Cup and ‘nullified’ all world rankings made by FIBA.

Nigeria beat the 5th ranked Argentina, 9th ranked Greece and 17th ranked Turkey in three straight victories to emerge the 1st ever African team to play in a World Cup quarterfinals.

Today, they were gallant losers to USA who are number 1 in the world. USA defeated Senegal 87-67, beat China 100-88, thrashed Latvia 102-76 before their 71-40 victory over Nigeria.

D’Tigress beat them 17-9 in the 1st quarter. That’s a record against a highly hyped American team. They struggled 27-23 in the second quarter before the Americans took over in the 3rd and 4th Quarter.
They scored the least points against D’Tigress and that says a lot about this Nigerian team.

Call them dogged, rugged, determined, patriotic, selfless, disciplined…an indivisible unit… one big family!
These young basketball players with an average age of 26 are the face and future of basketball in Africa.
They did not beat USA today but the Americans will go home nursing their hurting bodies because they met a team that will remain inedible in their playing history.

I wish to appreciate the #NBBF board led by Engr #MusaAhKida for proving a resounding point. That when you put the right pegs in the right holes, you achieve results.

Thanks to #BarristerSolomonDalung the Youth and Sports Minister and the man with the Midas touch. ‘Unfortunately’, everything you touch turns to gold! The feathers on your cap are now too many to count.
Our dearest but controversial colleague #OniGuarantorAfolabi, take a bow!

Your numerous reports, interviews, photographs and most especially the digital branding of the D’Tigress is unparalleled. #NMA please look towards this direction in your next awards.

To all Nigerians who supported and prayed for D’Tigress, may you never lack support when you need it.
Congratulations D’Tigress! Go home and savour the World Cup experience. It can only get better henceforth because you’re all now a bigger brand.

Thank you, Coach #OtisHughley. You’re highly appreciated. God bless Nigeria 🇳🇬 🇳🇬
