The hope of Nigeria’s senior women basketball team, D’Tigress, advancing in the ongoing Olympic Games in Tokyo is now slim.
The women basketball team, on Friday morning July 30, lost to their French counterparts in their second Preliminary Round Group B fixture.
D’Tigress lost 62-87 against France’s senior women’s basketball team at the Saitama Super Arena.
Recall that D’Tigress lost 81-72 in their first game against the United States on Tuesday. France also lost their first game, 74-70 against the host nation, Japan on Tuesday.
D’Tigress will now face Japan in their last game on Monday, August 2.
