The Philippines got clobbered as China flexed its might in a massive 117-43 beating in the quarterfinals of the Fiba Women’s Asia Cup Thursday at Sree Kanteerava Indoor Stadium in India.

It was never a fight as the Chinese immediately went into the offensive from the opening period with a 33-13 lead to close the first quarter.

Things became even uglier for the Philippines when it managed to score just a couple of points in the second quarter while China poured in 28 to go into the halftime break with a 61-15 lead.
