LONDON — Angel McCoughtry scored 18 points and Tina Charles added 16 to lead the U.S. Olympic women's basketball team to an 89-58 victory over Turkey on Wednesday night.

The Turks entered the game unbeaten and were expected to give the Americans their toughest test in the Olympics so far. They had looked impressive in their first Olympic appearance and said they weren't intimidated by the top-ranked team in the world despite the U.S. winning its first two games by an average of 38.5 points.

Turkey was able to hang with the U.S. (3-0) early in the game and had a one-point lead in the first quarter. But the Americans built a 15-point advantage by the half.

Turkey didn't waiver and pulled within 50-45 in the third quarter before McCoughtry and the reserves put the game away.
