The United States finished Week 1 of the 2018 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Nations League with a perfect record.

China vs. USA

China vs. USA

The U.S. national team passed the road from a five-set to a four-set win in the first two days of the tournament before they swept hosts China in straight sets in Pool 2 at Week 1 closing in Ningbo.

The USA confidently prevailed in the two of these three sets. The second set was an exception as the North American side had to make a comeback on 21-23, which they ultimately did. The game ended partially 25-20, 26-24, 25-28.  

Taylor Sander, who competed in China last season, top-scored for the United States with 17 points. Torey DeFalco made 4 kill blocks. Jiang Chuan scored 15 points for China.

In the same pool, Bulgaria beat Argentina in four sets, partially 19-25, 25-19, 25-21, 25-22, with 26 points from Nikolay Uchikov and 5 kill blocks from Svetoslav Gotsev. Bruno Lima scored 11 points for Argentina while Joaquín Gallego recorded 4 kill blocks.
