The U.S. women's basketball team quickly dashes any hopes China had of an upset, avenging a loss in April with the second American drubbing of the Chinese in as many nights.

Tina Thompson scores 13 of her 27 points during a 23-0 run in the first quarter of a 108-63 rout of China Monday night.

Trailing by one midway through the first quarter, Thompson took over. She made two 3-pointers, a jumper from the corner, two layups, and three free throws during the spurt.

The American men beat China 101-70 Sunday night.
