With two losses in two matches, the U.S. men’s volleyball team is on the verge of being eliminated from advancing to the quarterfinals.
Team USA enters play on Day 3 of the preliminaries Thursday with zero points, trailing France and Canada by three points for the final spot to advance.
If the U.S. squad can’t pick up at least a point, their chances at even getting into the ultimate tournament look slim.
