RIO DE JANEIRO -- Faces buried in hands and tears falling, the Brazilian womens volleyball team lost to China in a five-set quarterfinal match Tuesday. http:///...-max-tailwind-7.html .It was another heartbreaking defeat for the home country, only hours after the Brazilian womens soccer team fell in a penalty shootout to Sweden?at the Maracana Stadium. China rallied after losing the first set to stun the two-time defending champion Brazilians 15-13 in the decisive fifth.As China celebrated the biggest upset yet and quieted a stunned crowd, Brazil captain Fabiana pulled her team together in a huddle. Although Fabianas kill saved one match point to make it 14-13 in the third, Brazil had a pair of costly service errors late.Brazil had been the heavy favorite to face the United States in a potential gold-medal match after beating the Americans in the championship match in each of the past two Olympics. Meanwhile, a young China team that had been far from steady at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics played its best, most consistent match yet.Karch Kiralys top-ranked Americans moved one step closer to their goal of capturing the programs first volleyball gold by defeating familiar opponent Japan in straight sets to reach the semifinals.?For an American team that knows Japan so well, patience was an absolute must. Against the best defensive team in the world, balls are going to come back across the net.Before we go into any match with Japan, we have to know we need to have a lot of patience, outside hitter Kim Hill said.The unbeaten U.S. (6-0) won 25-16, 25-23, 25-22 and has dropped just five sets all tournament. The Americans will face Serbia, a straight-sets winner over Russia, in Thursdays semifinals at Maracanazinho Arena.Our approach is the same every time, so that didnt even really feel like an Olympic quarterfinal match, Kiraly said. Thats good. Were just playing volleyball against Japan.The U.S. has faced Japan more than any other team since 1983. The Americans have won the past three meetings on the Olympic stage against Japan, including opening the 2008 Beijing Games with a four-set victory and sweeping Japan in a match at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.They have a lot of fight in them, so it took a lot of patience on our end and regrouping and resetting, middle blocker Foluke Akinradewo said. I was proud of the team. We were able to get it out in three sets.China will face the upstart Netherlands women, who beat South Korea in four sets. The Dutch are in their first Olympics in 20 years and went 4-1 in group play behind the Americans.Japan, one of the top defensive teams in the world, had a 7-0 run in the third set before the Americans closed it out. Now, the U.S. is two wins from gold.I dont have any expectations. Others may have them, but I dont, said Kiraly, who is the only person to win gold as a player in beach and indoor volleyball and who is now looking to become the first to win gold as a coach and player.Serbia lost in four sets to the U.S. during pool play but pulled off a surprising, five-set victory at last years World Cup in Japan, and that forced the Americans to qualify for Rio in January in Lincoln, Nebraska.The most important thing is to keep smiling on the court and stay relaxed, and anybody can be beaten, Serbias Jovana Stevanovic said. http:///...2015-black-blue.html . Hey!" The lower tier of the School End of Queens Park Rangers Loftus Road was packed solid with a very festive-sounding Chelsea choral section in this particular part of South Africa Road London, W12. http:///...ia/air-max-thea.html . -- The St. Johns IceCaps weathered a wild first period with the help of goaltender Jussi Olkinuora, before finding offensive inroads in the second. http:///...max-2015-womens.html . Terms of the deal were not immediately available. The 26-year-old finished last season with Clevelands Triple-A affiliate in Columbus after signing with the Indians in August. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Marcus Mariota knows hes trying to do too much at times to help the Tennessee Titans win, so much that hes had far too many turnovers already this season.The second-year quarterback promises hes working as fast as possible to learn from his mistakes.Theres certain situations that are new to me, Im kind of experiencing on the fly, Mariota said Wednesday. Thats part of this process for me. Its part of the process for any young player. Ill continue to learn and grow.Ball security was a focus this offseason for the quarterback taken No. 2 overall out of Oregon in 2015.Mariota was intercepted 10 times and lost six fumbles in 12 games started as a rookie. Through three games this season, Mariota already has lost two fumbles and been intercepted four times.Tennessee (1-2) is tied for last in the NFL, scoring just 14 points per game and has scored only one offensive touchdown in the first half through three games. That came in the second quarter of the season opener.Well, its the turnovers, and thats on me and things that I can improve on, Mariota said. Thats going to hurt our team no matter what happens or where its going to be at. So if I do a better job taking care of the football, our team will be in better position.Only four quarterbacks have more interceptions than Mariota, whose four picks tie him with Ben Roethlisberger of Pittsburgh, Houstons Brock Osweiler, Carson Palmer of Arizona, Baltimores Joe Flacco and Ryan Tannehill of Miami.Titans coach Mike Mularkey refuses to let Mariota take the blame for his turnovers alone. Mularkey said everybodys at fault, including coaches.The Titans are working with the quarterback on better protecting the ball in practice, something they will keep doing until they get it right.This past game, we had somme situations, I thought we could have made some plays on those balls, Mularkey said. http:///...r-max-2016-mens.html. Mariota finally will play his first game Sunday against AFC South opponent Houston (2-1). The quarterback missed both games against the Texans as a rookie because of injury, and now he will play the defending divisional champ with J.J. Watt -- the three-time Associated Press NFL Defensive Player of the Year -- out after re-injuring his back.Yeah, thats kind of weird now that you think about it, Mariota said of finally facing a division opponent in his second season. Again, you never want to see a guy go down, and you just wish him well.Watt had 2+ sacks when the Texans sacked Zach Mettenberger seven times in a 20-6 win last season , and Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk fired coach Ken Whisenhunt two days later.Texans coach Bill OBrien said facing Mariota is a big challenge.When he gets out on the perimeter and hes able to use his skill as a runner, its tough ..., OBrien said. Hes doing a good job throwing the ball from the pocket. Hes definitely a dual-threat quarterback.Game notes Mularkey said WR Kendall Wright (left hamstring) practiced fully Wednesday, and the Titans are hoping he plays for the first time this season Sunday. TE Delanie Walker (right hamstring) was held out of practice as the Titans work to get him back on the field. Starting LG Quinton Spain (ankle) did not practice, and starting WR Tajae Sharpe (hamstring) was limited along with CB Cody Riggs (hamstring).---Online:AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Teresa M.
