Monday at the Olympics: USA out for water polo revenge

Four years ago, the U.S. men's water polo team, ranked No. 9 in the world, battled its way to the finals. The Americans hung in there, keeping it close until the final quarter against two-time defending Olympic champions Hungary, but lost 14-10 to take home the silver medal.

The Americans face the three-time defending Olympic champion Hungarians in a rematch today. (9:30-10:30 a.m., NBC/Ch. 5)
