It was a tough group: Knipe

Rich Lambourne, left, and Reid Priddy both reach for the ball.

U.S. coach Alan Knipe: We didn’t get a huge run of points, but I thought we sided out when we needed to. This is a tough group we have been in. In my three years of World League, this was the toughest group we have been in.

U.S. captain Reid Priddy: Clay got quite a nice start for us in the first set. He set a good tempo. I thought there was a patch in the second set where Puerto Rico made a surge. I thought we handled that well.

Puerto Rico captain Jose Rivera: It was a difficult game for us today. The USA started out with great serving from Stanley. In the second two sets, I thought we played hard. But their offense is really good.

Puerto Rico coach Carlos Cardona: Congratulations to the American team. Just as yesterday, the block was a big factor in the game. We tried to change the lineup and put some younger players in.
