I am going to have to concur that Turkey is the type of team that will beat Long BeachState in men’s volleyball. If our schedule had teams that had the type of talent level the Turks have, I’m counting on a donut year for Alan Knipe, and his sacking from his position as coach.
That being said, I can’t believe Italy can’t lay a finger to our guys. I also think Evan Patak picked the wrong time to be injured, in that semifinal. But the big guy bounced back, and Italy laid down and gave up, the USA keeping it real, 25-15, 25-22, 25-16.
I expect Canada to be crushed. And they were, going down in four to Turkey. More of the same..
