The Nigeria Women’s basketball team, D’Tigress on Tuesday secured a dramatic  57-56 points win over Greece to seal their place in the quarter final stage of the ongoing FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup in Spain.

After overcoming Argentina on Tuesday, the Nigerian Ladies still needed to navigate their way past Greece to make it to the quarter final and they did that albeit in the most dramatic fashion.

The Nigerian Ladies had 15 points just as their Greek counterparts did in the first quarter.

D’Tigress in the second quarter however pulled away as they opened a five-point going into half time; winning 16-11.

The third quarter got better for Nigeria as they further increased their lead with their 17-11 win.

However, it did not look too good for the D’Tigress in the final quarter as Greek Women tried hard to claw back and won the decisive final quarter 9-19.

The Nigeria Women’s basketball team will now be testing their might against the United States of America in the quarter final.
