The rejuvenated U.S. NT smashed Russia in straight sets, partially 25-20, 25-22, 25-22, to get a grip after a slow start of the campaign (all three defeats in Week 1) and achieve second consecutive win, both 3-0, in Pool F1 (Week 2) in Pau, France.

Russian National Team is unrecognizable in these five matches at the start of the tournament, seriously endangering Final Six qualification with 1-4 (four defeates in a row!).

New Cucine Lube Civitanova member Taylor Sander and Ben Patch, opposite from the NCAA runners-up BYU, led Americans with 15 points each. Dmitriy Volkov (receiver, Fakel Novy Urengoy) and Maksim Zhigalov (opposite, Belogorie Belgorod) both scored 10 for ‘Zbornaya’.

By beating Russia, the U.S. NT reached 150th win in the World League!
