Women’s AfroBasket: D’Tigress Destroy Guinea, Set For Tough Senegal Clash

Nigeria’s D’Tigress on Tuesday secured their fourth successive win in the 2017 FIBA Women’s AfroBasket in Mali.
Sam Vincent’s team reached another century of points with a 106-33 win over Guinea after they had destroyed Egypt 106-72 on Sunday.


Nigeria’s starting five were: Ezinne Kalu, Evelyn Akhator, Adaora Ulonu, Atone Nginyifa and Ndidi Madu.

The first quarter ended 26-8 in favour of Nigeria while it was 48-12 at half-time. The third quarter was also in Nigeria’s side as it ended 82-20.

The Nigerian ladies increased their lead in the fourth quarter of the blowout, ending the result as the biggest win of the tournament so far.

D’Tigress have also defeated Mozambique and Congo in the 2017 Women’s AfroBasket and qualified for the quarter-finals of the championship which also serves as the qualifying tournament for the FIBA Women’s World Cup.

After Tuesday’s game, Nigeria remain second in the table behind Senegal.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian women will complete their preliminary round matches on Wednesday when they face the firepower of Senegal who have been very impressive since the commencement of the competition in Bamako, Mali.
Having defeated Egypt 93-61 points on Tuesday morning, the Senegalese have so far also won four games in the tournament.
