At the XI men's Pan American Cup opening match USA defeated Chile in four sets 25-17, 17-25, 25-15, 25-22!

 

We haven’t played together for very long so I was happy the way we came back, we had difficulties in set two, which we weren’t very happy about. We tried to get everybody out there as much as possible. Chile is very good team, but in this tournament we really don’t know a lot of players and you have to come out and respect everybody,” says captain of USA Carson Clark.

The top scorer on the winning side was Torey Defalco with 15 points, while on the other side there was only one player with double digits – Vicente Parraguirre (16 points).

Canada have downed Costa Rica in Pool B, while in Pool C the host Mexico and Argentina scored victories as well.

EUROVOLLEY 2019 M: Vital Heynen’s surprise – makes 6 substitutions at once (VIDEO)

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
