The Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF) is making strategic moves in preparation for the 2024 Olympics in Paris, France, as they have called upon twenty talented players to join D'Tigress for their first phase camp. This decision underscores the nation's commitment to excellence in basketball and its aspirations to make a mark on the global stage. 

Among the invited players are FIBA Women's AfroBasket champions - Murjanatu Musa, Ifunanya Okoro, and Nkem Akaraiwe, who bring a wealth of experience and skill to the team. Their inclusion highlights the importance of seasoned players in mentoring and leading the younger talents towards success.

While seasoned players form the backbone of the team, the NBBF also recognizes the potential of home-based players. Regina Donanu, Wandoo Hembam, and Agatha Ternadoo, who have consistently showcased their talent and dedication at the national level, have rightfully earned their spots in the camp. Their presence serves as a testament to the depth of talent within Nigeria's basketball landscape.

The opening of the camp in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, marks the beginning of an intense training regimen aimed at refining the players' skills, fostering team cohesion, and developing strategic game plans. It provides a conducive environment for the players to immerse themselves fully in their preparations and bond as a unit.

The selection process for the camp reflects the NBBF's meticulous approach to talent identification and development. Each player has been chosen based on their performance, potential contribution to the team's objectives, and commitment to the sport. This ensures that the camp comprises a diverse mix of players with complementary strengths and abilities.

As the players converge in Abuja, they bring with them a shared sense of purpose and determination to represent Nigeria with pride on the Olympic stage. They understand the weight of expectations resting on their shoulders and are prepared to embrace the challenges ahead with resilience and fortitude.

Throughout the duration of the camp, the coaching staff will work tirelessly to instill discipline, tactical acumen, and a winning mentality in the players. Training sessions will be intense and focused, with an emphasis on continuous improvement and excellence in all aspects of the game.

With the support of the NBBF, the coaching staff, and the unwavering backing of fans across the nation, D'Tigress is poised to make a formidable impact at the 2024 Olympics. The journey begins in Abuja, where dreams will be nurtured, bonds will be forged, and aspirations will be transformed into reality.
