SAITAMA, Japan -- Team USA touched down at Tokyo's Narita Airport late Friday morning. Its next flight isn't scheduled until a week from Monday, and by then we'll know whether the Americans have fulfilled their quest to reclaim their spot as the best team on the planet.

In the meantime, they have four games left to play, beginning with Sunday afternoon's Round of 16 match against Australia (midnight EDT in the United States; ESPN2, tape delay, Sunday 1 a.m.).
