D’Tigress beat Turkey 74 to 68


After the disappointing loss to Australia in their opening game of the on-going FIBA Women World Cup in Tenerife, Spain, Nigeria’s national women basketball team, D’Tigress yesterday defeated Turkey 74 to 68 points to resuscitate their hope of a second round ticket.

Nobody gave the Nigerian girls any chance of beating the Turkish team based on their FIBA rankings and the recent results of games involving the two teams.

Turkey is ranked seventh in the world while Nigeria occupies the 34th position.
