Nigerians React As D'Tigress Crash Out Of World Cup
Nigerian fans seem to have signed a better for worse pact with the national women’s basketball team, D’Tigress.
Accolades have been pouring in for the Nigerian Ladies despite the ouster of the D’Tigress from the World Cup on Friday by USA.
Check out some selected reactions on twitter after Nigeria was beaten 71-40 on Friday by reigning World champs, USA.
?? It ends 71-40 to the USA. Well done ladies @DtigressNG #Nigeria
The size factor helped Team USA big girls on rebound & both sides of the court. But, all is not lost. We’ve seen what’s possible, hopefully we get more tall girls into the team for Tokyo.#FIBAWWC2018 #FIBAWWC pic.twitter.com/Ec3oKZNCL3

FT: Nigeria 40-71 USA. Lowest scoring win for USA. Not a disgrace for Nigeria although we struggle on the boards they gave their hearts out and we are grateful as a country. Hats off girls #FIBAWWC
