Basketball competition moves into a fifth day Wednesday, with both the United States women’s and men’s teams back in action. The women take on Serbia in an important Group B matchup, and the men will face an Australian team that has also won its first two group games.

Beginning the day will be a women’s matchup in Group B, as China plays Spain with the two teams tied for third place in their group on three points. China rebounded from a blowout loss to Canada in their opener with an emphatic win over Senegal, while Spain is looking to bounce back from their 40-point loss to the United States on Monday.

In non-United States men’s basketball action, Serbia and France meet in a game that’s of high importance given the fact that both still have to play the United States. After putting forth a poor showing in their loss to Australia, the French beat China by 28 Monday night. Serbia has also lost to Australia already, with the Aussies beating Serbia by 15 on Monday.

Senegal and China meet in the other Group A game, in what is likely the best shot for both teams to pick up a win in group play.
