Group A

Angola 47 - 82 Czech Rep

China 66 - 114 USA

Croatia 65 - 70 Turkey

The U.S. women's team tied their own Olympic scoring record Sunday with a 114-66 rout of China.

Diana Taurasi scored 22 points and the women matched the 114 points they scored against Spain in 1992, but fell well short of the women's Olympic mark of 128 points set by Brazil in 2004.
