USA Coach
USA team is improving every match, but today Korea had more experience and was better at ball control.
In the starting point of 4 set, no. 12 was substitiuted by settter and then USA team didn't seem to play very well.
The head coach wanted to give a chance to no. 12 to have little break but it doesn't always work.
Especially in the volleyball games. Score are always unpredictible. About Korea player, there isn't uperstar,
but they have good team work and each of them has ow qualities such as pass, speed or digging.

KOR Coach
Ever players did their own roles. They are mostly in the right time in the right place.
Blocks were efficient and No.8 HWANG show some vollies.
I was asking HWANG to spike little weaker than she used to and it was successful.

I am very happy that my sisters did try their very best and it leaded to today's win.
