D’Tigress moved up one spot in the latest FIBA rankings released on Monday and are now placed 14th after their impressive performance at the recently concluded 2022 FIBA Women’s World Cup Qualifying Tournament in Serbia.
Despite losing their opening match to China, the Nigerians bounced back with a shock win over France in their second game, before overcoming Mali in a thrilling final match to seal qualification for the World Cup in Australia later in the year.
On the strength of the victories, D’Tigress moved up a spot on the ranking to No.14, with the team that had occupied that place, Korea, moving up to 13th position.
D’Tigress remain No.1 in Africa followed by Senegal (30), Mali (37), Mozambique (41) and Angola (44).

While the top four teams remain unchanged, with the US still retaining the No.1 spot, followed by Spain, Australia and Canada, but Belgium leapfrogged France into the No.5 position on the strength of resounding victories over Puerto Rico and Russia in the World Cup Qualifying Tournament in Washington.

The French dropped a place to No.6 after suffering defeats in two of their games at the World Cup Qualifying Tournament in Belgrade.
