LONDON (AP) - Former Lady Vol Candace Parker led the way at the U.S. women's basketball team routed Angola 90-38 in Olympic action on Monday.
Parker scores 14 points and grabbed 12 rebounds as the U.S. women won their 35th straight Olympic game.
The Americans are looking for their fifth straight gold medal.
Parker hit seven of 10 shots from the floor and added four blocked shots and two assists in 23 minutes of action.
Another UT product, Tamika Catchings, tallied seven points, seven boards, two blocks and a pair of steals in 16 minutes, as the USA moved to 2-0 in Group A play with a much stronger showing than it displayed in its opener.
Next up for the U.S. is Turkey, which improved to 2-0 in pool play with a 61-57 victory over the Czech Republic.
The Americans also will face China and the Czech Republic.
The U.S. beat the Czechs in the finals of the 2010 world championship to qualify for the London Games.
