AfroBasket Final: Team Work And Confidence Will Give D’Tigress Victory Over Senegal – Rena Wakama

Head coach of Nigeria women’s basketball team, Rena Wakama says her team can win a fourth consecutive Women’s AfroBasket title with team work and confidence.

Rena made this known after D’Tigress defeated host nation Rwanda 79-48 in the semi-final on Thursday to secure a ticket to their fourth consecutive final where they will face the Teranga Lionesses on Saturday at the BK Arena in Kigali.

“There’s no secret. But they should be empowered. I believed in them. And I put a lot of confidence. And here we are doing amazing things. Team work and confidence in them, and we see the results.”

Meanwhile, D’Tigress star Pallas Kunaiyi-Akpanah has assured that her team has what it takes to win the championship for the fourth time in a row.

Kunaiyi-Akpanah however believes that the coach Rena Wakama-tutored side can emulate the feat of the set of 2021 by clinching the title on Saturday.

“I feel relieved honored. The team that won two years ago was a phenomenal team. But I think this team as well can fill those shoes. Under the leadership of coach Rena, we are in a good spot to repeat that win.”

“We can grab this win and make our mark in the tournament once again”, she assured.
