Game day...USA vs. Serbia

I know I can't put it any better than this...quote from Christa:

"Congratulations to Serbia. They played a phenomenal match. That’s the best I’ve seen them play defense. They seemed to have a solid game plan. They are a great ...team.

We’re two of the best teams in the world and we are going to expose all the weaknesses. I love the way that girls can come off the bench and be called to do any number of things. It was tough when Foluke went down. I think we were a little distracted there for a second just because we care so much for her. Obviously we wanted to turn this around for her and for everybody that’s a part of this program. We have a chance in the next 48 hours to do so.

This one stings for sure. But we had a great example set for us. Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross responded really well after their semifinal loss so we plan to take that same approach. Of course, yes, the next hour or so there is some grieving. But then we will see after 10 p.m. tonight who we will face in the bronze-medal match. We’re going after the bronze. That’s our next goal."
