Phil Dalhausser comes into Rio after reuniting with his old playing partner Nick Lucena, and they’re looking to get over the hump which kept Dalhausser out of the quarterfinals in London.
First up for the Americans will be Tunisia’s Mohamed Arafet Naceur and Choaib Belhaj Salah in a Pool C matchup. The top two teams in each pool automatically qualify for the knockout rounds, and the due of Dalhausser and Lucena are expected to (at minimum) accomplish that goal. That matchup is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m., and it will be available at NBCOlympics.com and on the NBC Sports app.
