away. >> france is going to challenge. >> a challenge coming. >> christenson likes this serve. inside out. it's a tough one for a lot of receivers to handle. you serve from about seven feet inside the right hash mark and you work back to the small side of the court. >> ball was called in. grebennikov, matt anderson, all waiting. tillie has helped his team with two challenges. that's good for two points. >> put that on the stat sheet. >> what would the score be under the old system? the united states -- it would be 11-6. >> far different match at 11-6.
>> holt again. combination. not there. ngapeth gets the ball up again. back to aaron russell out of the back row. >> he's not happy with the way he's played. he's attacked the ball pretty well with 14 kills but his overall game is not as good as it has been and he set the bar awfully high. huge wet spot from earvin ngapeth so court attendants coming out making sure it's dry. here's the service story for the united states. three aces, ten errors. for france, 13 errors, 4 aces. back row combination and that ball quickly tucked inside holt.
ngapeth and rouzier tied for the team lead for france with 17 kills. shoji not a good pass. that was a relatively easy shot and then a stuff block . >> that allowed him to get there. that's a big right hand in the seam. >> remember the scenario, the united states got out to 0-2 start. they're now 1-2 after the win over brazil. france is 2-1. that's a gift as that ball drifts out of bounds. it's a must-win situation. united states has to win this match. >> nothing changed. after the brazil match, nothing had changed because of the 0-2 start. it was great. it was exciting if you're a u.s. fan or u.s. coaching staff member or player. it didn't change anything about the predicament you put yourself in. >> missed serve by holt. tied at 11. >> u.s. needs a couple blocks.
needs to side out consistently. >> like i mentioned to you, kevin, ten stuffed block in the first two sets and none since. better offense by france? >> better offense and better passing with fewer opportunities. we've seen the united states also be out of position a few times and just miss playing missed opportunities to block a ball. >> taylor sander jumps well over 40 inches and needed all that hang time to get a hand on that ball. 12-11. united states leading two sets to one. and off the block and out of bounds. >> united states has two of its best servers in this match. max holt missed.
matt anderson skipped it off the tape. france breathes a sigh of relief. >> with this jump float, united states out to take it overhand. >> russell, what a dig by tillie. and saved. get back on the court, rouzier. and again with the dig. >> shades of 2000. put those two highlights side by side. what an effort. filling the stat sheet on one play. >> overhand pass into david lee. dug by tillie again. and a net violation. it was so loud.
net violation called against ngapeth and france but they're going to challenge the call. given france's track record, just give it to them right now. they've been really good on challenges so far in this set. >> they is a good way to describe it. excellent way to talk about it. >> there's a net. it was ngapeth's hand. >> they have to communicate whether they did or didn't. in this case earvin ngapeth may have numb hand because it was in the net. aaron russell back to serve. if you're just joining us, the united states a stunning comeback in the opening set. they won it 25-22. also on the second set by the same score. france came back. drilled the americans 25-14 in the third. americans out to a 6-1 lead but now we're tied at 13. >> brazil's favorite player at
>> a lot of jump floats from france right now. tight set. taylor sander off the top. what a swing by matt anderson. wow. talk about taking out the trash. >> i'm watching this and watching the transition block of france and with kevin le roux out there i would go set to middle. i would exploit that matchup in transition. le roux is taking off way early. >> easy serve again gobbled up. over the top and ripped. the united states serving has really dropped. >> hugely important for americans to get out of this
match with a win in four. save that point in case you end up in a tie situation. you want to have maximum points on your side. three points for a win in three or four. two for a win in five. >> ngapeth with a serve into the net. we don't like the system. it's fine for a long club professional season over 30 or 40 matches but not in a tournament. it is what it is. it's the same for all the teams. 16-15. the united states got to get back on track serving. france has been superb receiving since the first set. back to rouzier. down the line again. >> with the delivery. huge pressure on the block. that's about as far as you can back a ball in this game today. all of the way from the opposite sideline. the american block not able to get there. that is a special kind of set. >> here's kevin le roux
inconsistent from the service line. you never know what to expect. that's the same as a receiver. he served the ball out of bounds. >> i don't think kevin le roux is your thinking man volleyball player. instin instin instinctual guy. perfect pass again. every pass is right on target for france. >> with france's passing capability, you have to remain aggressive. americans have got in errors so they are getting a bit timid. i thought the one hit by micah christenson was a good one and france handled it well enough. >> tied at 17. to holt. there's max holt unloading out of the middle. you called it, kevin. that wle goff.
>> missed that serve well out of bounds. wow. >> earful from john speraw on that. >> that ball drifts out of bounds. france going with a lot of jump floats except from ngapeth and rouzier and now matt anderson will go back to the line. if someone could put together a serving streak, they'll win this set. if the united states does, they'll win the match. if france does, we'll be playing five. >> look at that pass. good touch out of the middle. big swing for anderson.
inside and france's block is down and now americans with a two-point advantage. >> this time it's le goff pushing off. watch his body position. way off the net fading to the left side. that's a terrible way to block. anderson takes advantage. >> time-out called by france. the united states leading 20-18 in the fourth. hello. hi. welcome. this is the chevy malibu. it was awarded "most dependable midsize car" by j.d. power. it looks great. wow! what is happening? oh my gosh, it's going up! but the malibu's not the only vehicle that was awarded. this is mind blowing. the chevy camaro, equinox, and silverado hd were awarded most dependable as well. this is extremely impressive. there's so many! doing it once, yea, great job, four times, obviously, they're doing something right. absolutely
>> anderson served 18 times. only one ace. that doesn't tell the story. he's put a lot of pressure on france. can he withstand the pressure now coming out of the time-out? excellent serve. to ngapeth. what a dig by shoji. taylor sander cannot impersonation and get that ball. >> big-time swing by a big-time player. ngapeth goes over the top perfect timing. >> le goff. another jump float serve. to the middle. no. combination play. not good timing. micah christenson, what a play! i told you he was a former basketball player. that was a two-handed slam dunk. >> he hits right or left handed. this one hanging on the top of the tape. you couldn't get bigger.
>> that was a huge play. that was an absolutely marvelous instinctive play. >> time and time again micah christenson has proved himself smart beyond his years, ice water in his veins. love the way he competes. >> pretty good serve. on the overpass christenson again and a net violation. what a good job by murphy troy coming in to serve. united states leading it 22-19. they lead two sets to one. last group match will be two days from now against mexico for the united states whereas france has to take on brazil. and that ball served out of bounds. one excellent serve, one long
for number 9. murphy troy out of st. louis and usc. aaron russell will come back on. another jump float serve. should united states receivers move up farther? >> they struggled in this rotation. >> perfect pass by shoji. anderson down the line. >> matt anderson played in big matches in his career. second time in the olympics. multiple time winner of champions league. russian super league. he's not feeling the pressure. he's simply in the groove. >> matt anderson had 24 kills against brazil. having another big match here late in the afternoon. ngapeth off the block and out of bounds. anderson's number, 13 of 31. hitting just under .300. taylor sander has ten kills. this is a very dangerous server
in earvin ngapeth. coming to anderson. outside to taylor sander for the kill. what a swing by sander down the line. and now three match points for the united states. the united states has gotten off the deck after being swept by canada to open the tournament. match point number one. and micah christenson misses it into the top of the tape. and it is kevin le roux going back to serve. >> we saw them struggle against brazil. >> time-out called by the united states. head coach john speraw.
>> if the u.s. takes this victory, it will be because every player on the court contributed. the kill from taylor sander there. erik shoji fighting off a bomb of a serve. the clutch swings of matt anderson. the blocking of the middles. another true team effort. >> it was a team effort in that huddle. 20 people chiming in. here's le roux. russell with the pass. here comes anderson. france a chance to get within one. out of bounds. the united states has won! they are now 2-2 in group play and they have put themselves right back in the mix. let's go back to the studio and

54 medals overall. of those medals, we have 21 gold, 15 silver, and 18 bronze. we look at who is coming in behind the united states. that would be china. coming in second with 41 medals, 13 of those are gold. then great britain is coming in third right now. they have won 26 medals, 9 of them are gold medals. now to the sticky busy of winning and also cash. singapore's joseph schooling who beat michael phelps la night in the 100 butterfly won more than $750,000 from his country for that gold. well, this fall, he'll be competing for the university of texas as a junior. what about the ncaa rules regarding student athletes getting paid? rick boone joining us now with more on this. rick, he won just a pile of cash. how is he going to be able to compete for his college? there are rules about this. >> the are rules about that, but the ncaa is saying don't worry about it. they have it all covered for the athletes out there who are currently in college. yeah, as you said, the payouts
