After a disappointing start to the tourney losing to Slovenia, then a bounce back win against Slovakia, and finally a blowout loss to OAR (Russia), Team USA finished in 7th place out of 12 in the group stages. Certainly a disappointment, but not entirely unexpected. As it turned out in the bracket, the Slovaks came in at 10th (lowest seed to win a game) and set up the rematch for a spot in the quarterfinals. It's win or go home!
