NIGERIA IS AFRICAN CHAMPIONS, BEAT SENEGAL 65-48]

Nigeria’s women national team, D’Tigresses, yesterday defeated Senegal by 65 points to 48 to make the country the undisputed champions of the sport in the continent. Nigeria also holds the male version of the title.

The Afrobasket Championship final, played in front of an impressive Bamako crowd, saw the Nigerian girls going better than they did in the group stage of the competition against the same opponents, as they stifled the Senegalese’ ammunitions en route the trophy.

The D’Tigresses had earlier booked their ticket to the World Championship when they defeated hosts, Mali in the semifinal on Saturday.

Yesterday’s battle was touted as a revenge mission for the Senegalese, but they could not stand the fury in the Nigerians’ play, especially the brilliant Evelyn Akhator, who combined gracefully with Ezinne Kalu to confound the Francophone girls.

Akhator accounted for 13 points to take the game from the Senegalese, who made the early noise, leading in the first quarter by 18 to 12. The D’Tigresses won the second quarter 21 to 10 and increased the lead in the third quarter, which they won 15 to 7 before rounding off play in the fourth quarter with 17 to 13 points.

Yesterday’s victory was Nigeria’s third in the competition having won it in Mozambique in 2003 under the same American coach, Sam Vincent. Vincent also led them to a successful defence of the title in Abuja in 2005, but they did not win it again until yesterday.

Nigeria’s male team, who are also the title holders in the men’s category, will start the defence of their crown next month in Tunisia.

Chances are they do not, but you are more than capable of this bad behavior.  Something went wrong in your day so everyone you come in contact with has to pay for whatever injustice the universe has supplied you with. If we take a page out of our pet’s book though, we will see sweating the small things is totally unnecessary.  In the grand scheme of things your pet may not face the pressure you do on a daily basis, but have they developed more effective coping skills with the problems they do face? It’s worth looking in to.

The company details its policy against buying meat raised with antibiotics, arsenic and growth hormones, and it's been open about its attempts to source locally-grown food. In other words, they don't just say "better ingredients" and leave it at that. They also publish their ingredients, so that customers can decide for themselves whether Chipotle really sells "food with integrity." Anything less would be nothing more than marketing hype.
