SOFIA, Bulgaria (AP) The U.S. men's volleyball team swept Cuba 3-0 Saturday to advance to the final of the FIVB World League.
The defending Olympic gold medalists won 25-23, 25-22, 25-23. The Americans will play Poland in the final on Sunday.
"Our defensive actions after Cuban blocks worked and we hit really well in transition, which gave Cuba a hard time," said U.S. player Matthew Anderson.
Poland knocked out Bulgaria 3-0 in the second semifinal. Bulgaria will face Cuba for third place on Sunday.
Along with the U.S. team, Bulgaria and Poland will play at the London Games.
