A commanding display by France handed Nigeria’s D’Tigress a second loss of the Tokyo Olympics basketball event in as many games.

Nigeria lost the first three quarters; 18-12, 26-15, 23-15 and drew the fourth 20-20, falling to the superior shooting power of the fifth best female basketball team in the world.

After a barren first three minutes of the opening quarter, France went up by 8 points and dominated to win by 18-12, despite Nigeria rallying back to draw 11-11 at some point.
