Igoche Mark Congratulates D’Tigress over Victory against France


A factional President of the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF), Mr Igoche Mark, has congratulated the D’Tigress over their 67-65 victory against France at the ongoing FIBA Women’s World Cup Qualifier in Serbia.

The keenly contested game saw the Nigerian ladies overcoming a 17 points deficit during the first quarter of the game.

Having lost their first game 90-76 to China and finding themselves at the bottom of the qualifying group, they took the game to the French side winning the last three quarters 16-10, 21-14 and 19-13, after losing the first quarter 11-28.

Congratulating the ladies, Mr Mark said the team showed the true spirit of a Nigerian by defying the odds to beat the fifth-best Women’s Basketball Team in the FIBA rankings.

“Congratulations dear Champions, I have never doubted your abilities.

“Thank you for putting up a good fight. You have made the federation proud, the country is proud of your performance.

“You defied every odd to beat one of the best basketball teams in the world, that’s the Nigerian spirit.

“You have conquered Africa, this is the time to rule the world as we are solidly behind you against Mali in your next game. Keep soaring higher,” Mark stated.
