Olym-Picks: Which Summer Games events to watch on Tuesday, Day 11
You won't want to miss key matches in women's volleyball and basketball
Not sure you want to watch all that the Summer Games has to offer? Here are a few events you may not want to miss (things are looking good for Team USA in women's beach volleyball!). If you want to watch them live at nbcolympics.com (if you're not in the U.K.) or just wait for the prime time digest on NBC is up to you.
Women's basketball -- USA vs. Canada (watch live at 6:00 a.m. PT, 9:00 a.m. ET)
Sorry, Canada -- but Team USA is on a roll. After taking down China 114 to 66, nothing seems to stand in the way of the ladies taking home the gold. But that's no reason to skip the other quarterfinal matches, so stay tuned for Australia vs. China (8:15 a.m. PT), Turkey vs. Russia (12:00 p.m. PT) and France vs. Czech Republic (2:15 p.m. PT)
Men's and women's beach volleyball (watch live: men's and women's semifinal #1 at 9:00 a.m. PT, 12:00 p.m. ET, men's and women's semifinal #2 at 1:00 p.m. PT, 4:00 p.m. ET)
The American men have been knocked out, but the ladies are holding strong. Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings as well as April Ross and Jen Kessy are in the quarter finals. Could this be an all-American final match?
Men's and women's gymnastics (watch live at 6:00 a.m. PT, 9:00 a.m. ET)
It's the finals in men's parallel bars, women's beam, men's high bar and women's floor exercises. Gabby Douglas is in position to grab gold on the beam, while Jordyn Wieber will be one to watch in the floor exercise event. It's the last day of gymnastics, so get your fix while you can!
Men's soccer (watch live: semifinal match #1 at 9:00 a.m. PT, 12:00 p.m. ET; semifinal match #2 at 11:45 a.m. PT, 2:45 p.m. ET)
The Americans are long gone, but watch as Korea takes on Brazil and Mexico faces off against Japan in the semifinals.
Synchronized swimming (watch live at 7:00 a.m. PT, 10:00 p.m. ET)
The duet event wraps up with a free routine for the finals, and it seems as if Russia is sure to take the gold with a full four points ahead of nearest rivals China. Spain is currently in third place, but as we know, anything could happen on Tuesday.
Women's volleyball - USA vs. Dominican Republic (watch live at 11:00 p.m. PT. 2:00 p.m. ET)
Team USA needs just three more wins to take the first-ever gold for the U.S. in this sport. But they'll have to get past the Dominican Republic first. Still, given that the Americans have won all five of their preliminary round matches in fewer than five sets, things are looking good.
