U.S., Canada in same Olympic bracket

The draw was held for the Olympic tournament with the U.S. team, coached by UConn's Geno Auriemma and likely to feature at least four former Huskies, and Canada, led by UConn's Kia Nurse, both landed in Group B as well as Senegal and Serbia and two teams yet to be determined.

The U.S./Canada game is scheduled for Aug. 12.

Pool play runs from Aug. 6-14, the quarterfinals are set for Aug. 17, the semifinals are Aug. 18 with the gold and bronze medal games being played on Aug. 20.

Japan, Brazil and Australia and three teams to be determined through qualifying tournaments are in Group A.

Argentina, Belarus, Cameroon, China, Cuba, France, New Zealand, Nigeria, South Korea, Spain, Turkey and Venezuela are vying for the other five spots in the Olympics so the strength of the pools is hard to gauge until those five team are slotted in.
