2023 Women Afrobasket: We Can Win This Tournament Again – D’Tigress Star


Nigeria’s D’Tigress star Pallas Kunaiyi-Akpanah has insisted that they have what it takes to win the championship again in Kigali.

Despite having a shaky preparation, the defending champions are already in the final of the 2023 Women’s Afrobasketball championship in Kigali, Rwanda.

Akpanah paid tributes to the victorious 2021 team but believes they have what it takes to retain the title.

“I feel really honoured. The team that won two years ago was phenomenal, but I think this group can also fill those shoes, especially under the leadership of coach Rena.

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