Are Nigeria's D'tigress too strong for African rivals? Join the conversation

Nigeria’s D’Tigress started the defense of their FIBA Women’s Afrobasket title on a winning note with a 75-26 points win against Tunisia.

They ended the game with a 49 point difference to their opponents, but the gulf between the two sides was not adequately reflected in the final result.

Since the appointment of American Otis Hughley before the World Cup last year, D’tigress have elevated their game and come into the continental competition miles ahead of their rivals

Hughley was not the coach in 2017 when they won, but has implemented a fast-paced system which suits the strength of the players at his disposal

Tougher tests await in Senegal, Mali and Angola, but D’tigress seem like an unstoppable force.

I think it’s too early to talk about this, the competition just started and there are still tougher opponents like Senegal Angola and Cameroon in the tournament. But Kudos to the team

Our Nigerian girls as are a dominant force in the game of basketball. No African team can stop them now.

Not at all. They are actually strong for some, but there are competitions like Senegal and co.
