Recently retired former national basketball team player Cecilia Okoye has backed the Nigeria women basketball national team to shock the world again and beat all comers to win the ultimate prize at the FIBA women Afrobasket which starts this weekend in Senegal.
Okoye who was part of the team that won the 2017 women Afrobasket in Mali, as well as the 2018 FIBA women world cup in Spain, urged the girls to continue their fine form at the tournament and also do well to ensure they get the ticket for the Africa pre Olympic qualifying tournament which comes to the top 6 teams from the Afrobasket.
“They should continue to shock the world and get the Gold like I know they will and we hope to see them play in the Olympics. The girls especially the credit goes to them. They have been amazing and hopefully, they will succeed again.”
