Just like they say in Nigeria that ‘corruption is fighting back’ the Americans are also fighting back.
They have been able to narrow the gap as the match approaches halftime. They lead 25-23, with a minute to go.
End of the first quarter, USA still sleeping at 11:50 AM, Nigeria making them pay, leading even while shooting 8-of-19 from the field. Well, that’s understandable, when you learn that USA are just 2-of-16!!! Nigeria leading 17-9, Evelyn Akhator has 6 points, Ezinne Kalu’s foot was on the line down here, so she’s still at 2 points personal.
Friendly reminder, USA need to get to 72 to reach 10k points in the history of #FIBAWWC.
