WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

The preliminary round for women’s basketball wraps up with four games, including a matchup between the United States and France.

SOCCER

After several shaky performances in the group stage, the U.S. women’s soccer team righted the ship in its quarterfinal match against the Netherlands. The Dutch had looked dominant up to that point, but in dramatic fashion, the USWNT won a shootout — thanks to some late heroics from Alyssa Naeher and Megan Rapinoe — to bounce them from the bracket. That win set up a semifinal fixture against Christine Sinclair and Canada next.

The U.S. could be one win away from a rematch with Sweden, as the Swedes play Australia in the other semifinal. Sweden knocked the U.S. out of the 2016 Olympic tournament and has already beaten the U.S. — in convincing fashion — during this year’s tournament.

After finishing the group stage with a perfect 2-0 record, the U.S. baseball team advanced directly to Round 2 of the knockout stage and will face Japan on Tuesday. Because of the knockout bracket’s double-elimination format, the winner of that game will move straight to the semifinals, while the loser while drop into the repechage part of the bracket and get a second chance at making the semifinals.

WRESTLING

Adeline Gray, a five-time world champion and one of the most dominant athletes in women’s wrestling, is seeking her first Olympic gold medal. The American star will have a chance to get it on Tuesday as she wrestles Aline Rotter-Focken in the women’s freestyle 76kg final.

In another notable final, Cuba’s Mijain Lopez will wrestle in the gold medal match for Greco-Roman 130kg against Georgia’s Iakobi Kajaia. Lopez has won three consecutive gold medals in this event, and a fourth would put him in some elite company. Only four other Olympians have ever won gold in the same individual event at four straight Games.
