The USA Women's Volleyball team played its third match in Lincoln on Thursday. The result wasn't the same as the previous nights.

The US lost to Brazil 3-1 (25-19, 25-17, 22-25, 25-20) in front of 8,000 fans at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Mikaela Foecke, who did not play until the third set, sparked the Americans' comeback attempt. Foecke had 8 kills in two sets. However, the US had no answer for Brazilian attacker Gabriela Braga Guimaraes, who finished with a match-high 25 points.

Former Huskers Jordan Larson and Kelsey Robinson both started for Team USA. Larson and Robinson combined for 14 kills.
