To win again today feels great. We obviously went the distance in this match. Tunisia played very well and they really put a lot of pressure on us. I am really pleased to have a lot of guys in the team step up. It’s exciting to see the completeness of our team, so this was a fantastic win.
We must be ready for whichever team we face in the next round. We’re scouting every opponent, but we want to put great volleyball on the court every time.
USA captain Joel Schneidmiller:
To come back the way we did today shows that we have a lot of pride. We definitely brought it out. It shows a lot about our team and how resilient we are.
The other games we played weren’t easy ones but we didn’t get pushed as much as we did today. This was a good test for us. This game woke us up and snapped us back into shape. They took us to five and it was a good push, and we did well down the stretch to win.
