U.S. women beat Spain to move to 2-0 in Rio

U.S. women's basketball team

The United States women improve to 2-0 at the Rio Olympics with a 103-63 win over Spain on Monday.

For the fourth Olympics running, Diana Taurasi and Sue Bird led the way for the Stars and Stripes to extend the U.S. Olympic win streak to 43. Taurasi had a U.S. high 13 points.

Spain played the United States tough, but the U.S. depth was too much for the Spaniards to overcome. All but one of the Americans scored with five players notching double digits.

Alba Torrens was the leading scorer for Spain with 20 points.

In their two victories at the Rio Olympics, the U.S. women’s basketball team has won by a combined total of 105 points.
