Czech opposite Jan Svoboda scored 16 points from 14 attacks and two blocks. Lukas Vasina (15 points) and Marek Sotola (13 points) also helped boost the scoring output from the European side. China’s captain Cong Tian led all scorers with 18 points, but the Asian side suffered dearly from errors in crucial moments.
