D’Tigress of Nigeria star Sarah Ogoke has revealed that they are familiar with two of the three teams that were grouped alongside the African Champions in this year’s FIBA World Women’s Basketball World Cup in Tenerife, Spain.
In the draw that was conducted earlier this week, the team was drawn in Group B alongside Argentina, Turkey and Australia.
Reacting to the draw, Sarah Ogoke stated that the team is no stranger to Argentina and Turkey after the two countries featured in the 2016 Olympics Qualifying Tournament (QOT) in France.
In her words, Sarah Ogoke said: “I feel good. We got placed in a group in which we have some knowledge and experience against two of the three teams we’ll be facing. Both Argentina and Turkey were in the 2016 OQT in France so we at least have a good idea.”
The FIBA World Women’s Basketball World Cup will take place from September 22 to September 30, 2018.
