The 2012 London Olympics have been memorable to say the least through two weeks of action, and will have top-notch events on Day 11.

Fans are sure to catch the action on NBCOlympics.com, where all events will be streamed live for all viewers. On television, fans can find their TV listings on the NBC Olympics' "TV Listings" section. Events will broadcast on NBC, NBC Sports Network, MSNBC and other NBC affiliates.

Team USA headlines the Games in the basketball tournament and beach volleyball semis, while two impressive sides face off on the men's side of the soccer draw.

These are the top three sports fans have to be sure to tune into on Day 11.

Women's Basketball

Quarterfinals Match to Watch:

USA vs. Canada at 9:00 a.m. ET


The gold-medal favorite United States will take on Canada in what is set to be an epic quarterfinals contest.

The USA is led by Tina Charles and Angel McCoughtry in what is a no-brainer for Olympic fans to tune into.

Although Canada is just 2-3 coming into the contest, there is no question they will giving the Americans a run for their money in this one. In their second-most recent outing, they defeated Brazil 79-73 and essentially knocked the contenders out of the tournament.


Men's Soccer

Semifinal Match to Watch:

Brazil vs. Korea at 2:45 p.m. ET


Brazil has surely been the best team on the pitch at the London Games from the get-go, make no mistake about it.

All the fans that had Spain as gold-medal favorites must have only fueled this Brazil team that is dominating the games. They are 4-0 at these games and had their biggest scare of the tournament in a 3-2 victory over Honduras in the previous round.

The Brazilians take on a tough underdog in South Korea. The team is fresh off of a penalty shootout victory over host Great Britain and have put forth some stellar soccer. They are the only team that hasn't lost to Mexico in London.

Don't be surprised if a resilient, exceptionally quick South Korean side has the last say in this match of epic proportions.


Women's Beach Volleyball

Semifinals Match to Watch: 

Misty May-Treanor / Kerri Walsh vs. Chen Xue / Xi Zhang at 5:00 p.m. ET


The Americans are top-notch when it comes to beach volleyball, and May-Treanor and Walsh will be leading the way for this heavily favored Team USA.

They face two solid talents in Xue and Zhang, both of whom have had an incredible run at these Games. A gold medal at these games would put an end to May-Treanor and Walsh's tremendous feat of three consecutive Olympic gold medals.

Talk about what most would perceive as an outright unconscionable feat.

May-Treanor and Walsh have been dominating the competition, winning all but one set of the 11 they have played. More so because of what will be Team USA's hot play than a lackluster China performance, May-Treanor and Walsh will claim a spot in the final.

Make no mistake though, this will be one heck of a contest.
