It was a tough loss for the United States, but a silver medal is hardly anything to be upset with. On this day, Brazil was simply the quicker and better team.
The U.S. won the first set easily by a score of 25-11. While they had the early advantage, Brazil promptly responded with a 25-17 second set victory. Brazil won the third set 25-20, and with all the momentum on their side, they closed out the fourth and final set with a 25-17 mark.
