NBA Star Showers Accolades on D’Tigress, Otis for World Cup Feat

Nigeria’s run at the FIBA Women’s World Cup 2018 was remarkable as it was historic and a week after the tournament, D’Tigress and Head Coach Hughley Otis still get accolades.

Otis engineered the best campaign of any African team in the competition, as he guided the D’Tigress to three wins and a spot in the quarter-final in Tenerife.

 


The feat caught the attention of the world and NBA star DeMarcus Cousins is the latest to shower the team with praise.

 

Cousins tweeted:

Big congrats to my high school coach Otis Hughley on Nigeria Women’s National Team’s run during the FIBA World Cup. 1st time in history an African team won a game in the World Cup let alone making it to the quarterfinals! Started ranked #42 and finished 8th in world! 🇳🇬

 

Otis was Head Coach of LeFlore High School Basketball team between 2006-2011, where he finished with a record of 134-25.

 

The Golden State Warriors Forward is the latest high profile name to acknowledge Nigeria’s rising profile in Basketball.
