Stefanie Dolson was too much for Italy as Team USA stayed unbeaten in women's 3x3 basketball with a 17-13 win on Monday.

The Italians hung tough with the favored Americans before falling to 2-4 on the tournament.

Dolson, the Chicago Sky veteran, had six points and seven rebounds in the win, also blocking a shot. Dallas Wings guard Allisha Gray had six points and six boards.

USA (5-0) plays China later Monday and finishes pool play with hosts Japan on Tuesday.
