2018 FIBA World Cup: D’Tigress hit Lagos camp on Monday

The Women’s Senior National Basketball team will arrive Lagos, Nigeria in the early hours of Monday for the next phase of their 2018 FIBA Women’s World cup in Spain.
After weeks of training in Atlanta, the team led by Hughley Otis will have their last training in the United States of America on Saturday before their departure on Sunday.
According to the information made available by the Technical crew through Assistant Coach, Peter Ahmedu, 1 more player will be dropped from the 14 in camp before their departure.
“Presently, we have 14 players including Adaora Elonu who has been drafted by Atlanta Dreams.
We will reduce to 13 players before we leave for Lagos.
We will be able to drop 1 more player because we have 3 players (Uju Ugoka, Nkem Akaraiwe and Nkechi Akashili) back home for the next phase of our preparation.” Commenting on life under the new coach, Peter said the team has completely settled in and are now focused on the task ahead.
Coach Ahmedu described the experience so far as wonderful as he remains optimistic that it will translate to a good outing at the world cup.
The current African Champions will start training on Tuesday at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium, Lagos
