Akashili makes final D’Tigress Roster for World Cup

Nkechi Akashili has been named in the final 12 player roster by Hughley Otis for the 2018 FIBA Women’s World Cup.

Akashili, who is also the only home based player in the team, was initially not in contention for a place in the D’Tigress party to Spain according to NBBF sources.

 


The list was announced on Wednesday, three days before the tip off of the World championship and Nigeria’s against first group A game against Australia’s Opals.

 

Over the two weeks when the Nigeria team camped in Lagos for the second phase of their world cup campaign, Akashili and her First Bank Basketball club teammate, Nkem Akaraiwe, were the only home based players invited by the NBBF to try out for places in the team.
