Nigeria vs Japan Women Olympics Basketball: Nigeria’s defense was a huge problem against the French women but their offense was no better either as they shot only 35%. Nigerians are yet to found consistent offensive options on the team and if Kalu fails then they stand no chance at all. Meanwhile, Japan has done a much better job at both ends of the floor and plays a more efficient brand of team basketball. Japan has gunned down France before and they have more talent and depth than the Nigerian women, if Nigeria has to come on top then they would have to find more from their young players. It will also be interesting to see how Nigerian women defenders deal with Maki Takada who has been difficult to stop even for lengthy and athletic French and USA defenders.
