The Nigeria Women’s Basketball team  D’Tigress are a step closer to qualifying for the quarter final phase at the ongoing FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup in Spain.

The Nigeria Ladies on Tuesday overcame Argentina in their last group game 75-70 to take a big step at getting into the last eight.

The Coach Otis Hughley tutored side won the first quarter of Tuesday’s game 16-13 but the Argentines took the second 16-13.

The third quarter was even at 19-19 before the D’Tigress sealed victory in the final quarter; winning it 24-22. 

D’Tigress had promised that they would avenge the defeat suffered by the Super Eagles at the last FIFA World Cup against Argentina in Tuesday’s game, and they did just that as they overpowered the South Americans in the keenly contested tie.
