FIBA U17 - USA breeze past China into Semis
In the Semis, the USA - who have never lost in the history of this tournament - will square off against the winners of the Quarter-Final between Canada and Serbia.
The Americans pulled away right away in the first quarter, building a 20-point lead 30-10. And it was 30-11 after 10 minutes.
After China had fought back to within 39-25, USA coach Don Showalter called a time-out, saying "Now they're back in the game."
His team responded by closing out the first half on a 12-0 run for a 51-25 lead at the break.
A 16-0 spurt finished the 30-2 run spanning the second and third quarters for a 69-27 advantage.
China never threatened after that.
