The Nigerian national women basketball team yesterday could not hold their own against their US counterparts as they lost 62-93 in a friendly at Las Vegas.

In the game arranged to prepare both sides for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics, the Americans totally dominated the game.

The Nigerian side were restricted to just 30.6 percent shooting during the game, while their foes shot 53.8 percent overall.

The American side also outscored Nigeria in all four quarters of the game, though only by one point in the third quarter.

Both teams will meet again in the group stage of the Olympics in Tokyo on July 27.
