Senegal at home could not stop the Nigerian furia. The D’Tigress took over the 60-55 Lionesses in the final of the 2019 Women’s Afrobasket at the Dakar Arena.
Under the eyes of many celebrities attending the encounter including El-Hadji Diouf, the two-times CAF African Player of the Year, Senegal has still fallen in front of the Nigerian mountain.
The 15,000 Dakar Arena seats were all occupied before the kickoff of the final. Despite Astou traoré well in her match, author of 13 points 6 rebounds, opposite Osaretin Akhator was a step up with 14 points 9 rebounds.
With the exception of the last quarter in favor of Senegal, all the first three were dominated by Nigeria (10/14, 14/18, 13/16, 18/12). And it is obvious to see Nigeria wins their fourth African title.
