Holland Beats U.S. in Volleyball

June 29, 1992

Despite the offensive effort of Bryan Ivie and Bob Samuelson, the U.S. men's volleyball team dropped its second match in a row to Holland in the World League playoffs in Rotterdam. The Dutch defeated the Americans, 15-10, 15-17, 5-12, 17-15 Sunday.

Middle blockers Ivie (25 kills, four blocks) and Samuelson (17 kills and a team-high five blocks) paced the United States, who was playing without two-time Olympian Steve Timmons. Carlos Briceno, filling in for Timmons, recorded 21 kills. Teammate Bob Ctvrtlik added 18.

The U.S. meets Brazil Friday in the San Diego Sports Arena at 7 p.m. Through Sunday, the Americans (3-3) are in fourth in the playoffs, behind Italy (6-0), Cuba (3-2) and Holland (3-3). The top four teams advance to the semifinals beginning Sept. 4 in Genoa, Italy.
