Sarah Te-Biasu added 10 points in the win, while Brynn Masikewich had seven points and 12 rebounds.

Canada opened the game on a 13-0 run, but Thailand rallied to tie it at 29-29 at halftime.

A strong third quarter put Canada up 48-36 and the team then rolled to victory.

Canada will play Argentina (1-2) in a round-of-16 game on Wednesday.
