Tokyo Olympics: The USA beat Nigeria’s D’Tigress in final test game

No Nigerian player scored in double figures.

ByTunde Eludini July 19, 2021



The USA women’s basketball national team will be heading to the Tokyo Olympics in a more buoyant mood.

The Americans who lost their two earlier test games finished their friendly schedule before the 2020 Olympics with an emphatic 93-62 victory over Nigeria’s D’Tigress on Sunday in Las Vegas.

Having seen the Nigeria men’s team stun their male counterparts some days back, the American ladies attacked Sunday’s friendly in a business-like fashion

The Americans held D’Tigress to just 30.6 per cent shooting while they shot 53.8 per cent overall. They also outscored Nigeria in all four quarters of the game, though only by one point in the third quarter.

The top performers for the US were A’ja Wilson and Breanna Stewart who led with 16 points and 10 rebounds and 14 points and six assists, respectively.

For D’Tigress, Atonye Nyingifa led with nine points. Atlanta Dream’s center Elizabeth Williams played 29 minutes, scored four points; meaning no Nigerian player scored in double figures.

In Sunday’s friendly, Chiney Ogwumike, who is the younger sister of Nneka was allowed to play for Nigeria, but SBNation reports she is appealing FIBA’s decision to classify her as a naturalized citizen.

Nneka on her part didn’t play as the Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) is reviewing their cases.

Interestingly, their first game in the group stage will also be against Nigeria on July 27 in which D’Tigress will hope for a better result.

The US men's team also defeated Spain 83-76 in a friendly.

grin Typical Nigerian reaction.

By the way, did you notice a trend? The men play Australia at the Olympics and they lost to Australia in the friendlies. The women play the US at the Olympics and they lost to the US in the friendlies.

The US wouldn't want Nigeria to do a double on them.
