The score was 3-0 (25-18, 25-11, 25-7) over the US Virgin Islands.

“The main thing is that all the players have had a chance to be involved in these two first games, so obviously the rust is gone. Since everyone has had a chance to see the court it gives us more options moving forward, and that’s very important in preparing us for the next round,” said Canada’s head coach, Olivier Faucher.

Pool action continues on Thursday, with playoffs on the weekend.
