BANGKOK (FIBA U19 World Championship for Women) - Canada bounced back into the reckoning powering their way past Tunisia 87-26 in Group C action on Friday.
For Canada, who lost to Russia on the opening day, it was their first win. Tunisia, who lost to Japan on Thursday, have now lost both their games.
Lilia Inoubli scored the first points of the game - via a three-point conversion - but that was a rare moment of joy for Tunisia in the game.
Kayla Alexander fired eight of her 13 points and pulled down nine of her game-high 10 rebounds in the first quarter as Canada pulled away with a 10-0 run midway through the first quarter.
Inoubli scored in the lane to break the barren period for Tunisia, but Canada raced ahead with a 7-0 spree to close the first quarter 26-9.
The second quarter saw Tunisia being completely shut out - confined only to three points - and Canada didn't have to worry much thereafter.
Natalie Achonwa shared the scoring honours for the game with Alexander.
Inoubli was the highest scorer for Tunisia with 12 points.
