Team USA Men's Water Polo Loses To Spain In Classification Match

On Thursday, the United States women's water polo team took home the gold medal. On Friday, the men's team suffered another defeat and will now be trying to salvage a seventh-place finish at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. In Friday's classification match, the U.S. lost to Spain by a final score of 8-7.

Well out of the running, the United States is waiting to see who wins Friday's other classification match between Australia and Hungary. The U.S. will play the loser of that match Sunday morning at 5:20 a.m. ET to determine who will go home in seventh and eighth place.

The men's semifinals will take place later on Friday. Croatia will take on Montenegro while Italy will play Serbia to decide which two teams will face off in the gold-medal final.
