Men face must-win match, women in strong position
The U.S. men's sitting volleyball team faces a must-win match against Libya at 6 tonight if it hopes to advance out of pool play.
Monday's loss to Bosnia, one of the favorites to win the title, dropped the team to 0-2 in the tournament, including a loss to China on Sunday. The Americans must defeat Libya tonight and Canada on Wednesday to make it to elimination play. The top three teams out of the five-team pool will advance.
The women are nearly a lock to advance after defeating Japan in straight sets Monday to move to 2-0. The ext match for the U.S. is 11 a.m. today against Lithuania.
