Ogoke Craves Satisfaction With D’Tigress’ Win Vs Argentina


D’Tigress’ guard, Sarah Ogoke, is targeting another win in their final Group B game at the ongoing 2018 FIBA Women’s World Cup in Tenerife Spain against Argentina on Tuesday following their remarkable win over Turkey at the Santa Cruz de Tenerife court on Sunday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

Argentina lost their opening two games; 84-43 to Australia and 63-37 to Turkey.

Ogoke was in bullish mood for the D’Tigress who recorded a landmark 74-68 victory over Turkey- their first-ever FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup win.

The 28 year old recorded 22 points, four rebounds, three assist and one steal for the 2017 FIBA Women’s AfroBasket champions.

“I’m not satisfied at all because to me it’s a big win, but we can’t feel comfortable until we beat Argentina and move into the next round,” Ogoke told FIBA.com.


“It’s not over yet and we’re just getting started.

“I have been playing on the national team for a while now and felt that I had a point to prove and Nigeria also had a point to prove. We’re not your typical African basketball country.

“We have a lot of talent on this team and we have a lot of experience and we finally got the chance to show it.”
