The Nigerian basketball team has been a great roster. More than they have been proving their spot, their team game has been on point. Coming on against the gold medalist since 1996 Olympics, it’s a tough ask for the team.

Team USA didn’t get off to a great start in the pre-Olympic exhibition games in Las Vegas, losing 93-85 to the WNBA All-Stars and then losing 70-67 to Australia. But the team did look much better in its 93-62 win over Nigeria on Sunday. Brittney Griner dominated down low in her 15 minutes of play with 12 points and six rebounds, and A’ja Wilson recorded a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Breanna Stewart and Chelsea Gray each recorded six assists in the blowout win.

Nigeria is one of the biggest long shots on the board to win the gold medal in Tokyo.  It will be tough for the Nigerian women to even win a single game in Group B, which includes a solid France team and host nation Japan. This will be just the second time that Nigeria has competed in the Olympic Games in the women’s basketball, qualifying once before back in 2004 and going 1-5 during the group stage in that event. Antonye Nyingifa led Nigeria with nine points in just under 13 minutes of play in last Sunday’s game.
