Previewing the women's volleyball quarterfinals

Posted: Updated:

The women's quarterfinals are ready to get underway.

The U.S. women play Japan at 1 p.m. ET in the second quarterfinals match of the day.

Korea and the Netherlands square off at 9 a.m. ET to kick things off.

Russia and Serbia play at 5 p.m. while Brazil and China have the primetime nightcap at 9:15 p.m. Tuesday.

In the preliminary round, the U.S. women went 5-0 and earned 14 out of a possible 15 points. Japan needed a sweep of Argentina on its final day to secure a spot in the quarterfinals.

The Japanese women went 7-9 in terms of sets and 2-3 overall in the five matches.

Brazil finished a perfect 15-0 in 15 sets in the preliminary stage. The host Brazilians have beat the U.S. in the gold medal game two Olympics in a row (2012, 2008).

A Team USA-Brazil rematch would not happen unless both teams advance to a medal game, however.
