D’tigress players Amy Okonkwo is confident the team will bounce back from the defeat against China.
 
The African Women’s Champions began their first FIBA 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign with a 90-76 defeat to China on Thursday.
 
The game played at the Ranko Žeravica Sports Hall, Belgrade, saw the more experienced Chinese take control of the game right from the first quarter.
 
China took the first three quarters 29-14, 25-22, 25-16 before the Nigerians rallied back and took the fourth set 24-11.
 
Amy Okonkwo was D’tigress’s best performer with 14 points in the game, despite coming in from the bench.
 
Speaking ahead of the second game against France, Okonkwo, said the girls will bounce back from the setback.
 
We didn’t start well, but we fought hard to get back in the game and it was such a difficult thing to do.
 
“I tried to do my best when I came on. I took advice from the coach and did what he asked of me.”
 
“We are not out, we will go into the next game with all confidence and I believe we can get something positive at the end of the game.”
