Add your thoughts throughout the day on any and all of the action from London!

The third day of pool play competition commences from "The Mattress" as the demarcation line between those who will survive and advance and those who will not becomes even more clear. Here's a look at who plays who and where each team stands:

9 a.m. (4 a.m. ET)

11:15 a.m. (6:15 a.m. ET)

Last time out: After being drubbed by the U.S., Angola's uphill battle continues against another undefeated team in Group A. China had their way with Croatia in an 83-58 beating on Monday.

2:30 p.m. (9:30 a.m. ET)

Last time out: Australia looks to rebound after their tough overtime loss to France on Monday while fending off a winless Brazilian team that fell to the bottom of Group B after a 10-point loss to Russia.

4:45 p.m. (11:45 a.m. ET)

Last time out: Russia looks to keep pace with France at the top of their group as they go against a home team that desperately seeks their first-ever Olympic win.

10:15 p.m. (5:15 p.m. ET)
