Sam Vincent’s team reached another century of points with a 106-33 win over Guinea after they had destroyed Egypt 106-72 on Sunday.

Nigeria’s starting five were: Ezinne Kalu, Evelyn Akhator, Adaora Ulonu, Atone Nginyifa and Ndidi Madu.

The first quarter ended 26-8 in favour of Nigeria while it was 48-12 at half-time. The third quarter was also in Nigeria’s side as it ended 82-20.

The Nigerian ladies increased their lead in the fourth quarter of the blowout, ending the result as the biggest win of the tournament so far.
