LONDON (AP) -- Nevriye Yilmaz scored 16 points to help Turkey advance to the quarterfinals of the women's Olympic basketball tournament with an 82-55 victory over China on Friday.
Isil Alben nailed two 3-pointers and Turkey ended the first quarter with a 12-0 run to take a 26-13 lead.
Turkey stretched its lead to 19 but then could not score for nearly seven minutes before Birsel Vardari hit a 3-pointer, but the Turks still led 39-27 at halftime.
But China, which has already qualified for the quarterfinals, could not mount a serious second-half challenge and fell to 3-1 in the tournament.
American-born Quanitra Hollingsworth added 10 points and 11 rebounds for Turkey (3-1). Chen Nan had 19 points for China.
