It’s win and move on, lose and go home — so to speak — for the United States men’s volleyball team when it faces Mexico on Monday in Rio.
The 2-2 men sit fifth in the table but are the only team yet to play winless Mexico, a side with just one set won to its credit so far.
With 2-2 Brazil playing 2-2 France, both sides the U.S. has beaten, a win would push the Americans into the Top Four (and the knockout rounds).
USA players Matt Anderson and Aaron Russell are tied for second in points this tournament, with Erik Shoji pacing the tourney with 2.0 digs per game.
