Nigeria have warmed up for Tuesday's friendly against the Boomers with another impressive win ahead of the Tokyo Olympic Games.

The Africans followed up their victory over the United States by defeating Argentina 94-71 on Monday, with Jahlil Okafor scoring 15 points and Precious Achiuwa adding 12.

Josh Okogie and Chimezie Metu each added 10 points for Nigeria, who triumphed over the US 90-87 on Saturday.

The Nigerians won that game without Okafor, who had just joined the team and wasn't immediately pressed into action by coach Mike Brown.

Okafor was more than ready on Monday, going seven for 8 from the floor and grabbing seven rebounds in 14 1/2 minutes of action.

Leandro Bolmoro led Argentina with 10 points while Luis Scola added nine.
