Slovakia pulled off the biggest upset on the opening day by coming from behind to beat Russia but against medal contenders Spain they proved to be no match.

The Spanish streaked out to a 38-18 half-time lead and cruised to a 71-47 win.

Amaya Valdemoro, who opended her account in this tournament with 18 points in Friday's win over Belgium, had the hot hand again with a game-high 15 points.

Included in the performance of the former WNBA champion with the Houston Comets were two three-pointers from five attempts. She also had eight rebounds and three steals.

Alena Kovacova and Andrea Belanska each scored 11 points for the Slovaks, who were a woeful 13 of 54 from the floor.

Spain outrebounded the Slovaks 47-39.
