Kelsey Robinson led four American players who scored in double figures with 15 points. She was supported by Andrea Drews, Chiaka Ogbogu and Haleigh Washington with 14, 12 and 10 points, respectively.

Gabriela Guimaraes and Drussyla Costa each scored 12 points for Brazil (3-2).

USA coach Karch Kiraly: "We have tremendous respect for this coach and his staff and his team. Brazil is one of the great programmes in the world of international volleyball, so we always know it will be difficult when we play. Our team did a nice job of executing our strategy today and we're happy to get the win."

Brazil coach Jose Roberto Guimaraes: "Congratulations to USA for today. They missed very little, had a great strategy, served well and played with speed. They were almost perfect, I'd say. We couldn't match their fast start. We started to play our game after a couple of timeouts, but by then it was too late to make a comeback."
