Jordan Larson and Kelsey Robinson each had 16 points for Team USA. The Americans remain undefeated at 4-0.

USA coach Karch Kiraly: "This team we played today, the Netherlands, is a really good team. They impressed us a lot, especially in their win against Brazil. We always expect a great battle from them. They have some special offensive weapons, especially their opposite, the No. 10 [Lonneke Sloetjes] who's always difficult to try and block and defend.

In Yokohama, China beat the Dominican Republic 3-0 (25-19, 25-21, 25-19) and coach Lang Ping said preparation for the opponent's veteran players was key to the win.

China is undefeated in four outings, while the Dominican Republic dropped to a 2-2 mark.

"We made full preparation for today's match," Lang Ping said "The Dominican Republic has many experienced players, so we focused on that." 

Dominican Republic coach Marcos Kwiek: "We had some good moments today. We were aggressive with serve and reception. China's quick play and defense gave us trouble. When you play matches like this, you need to be 100 percent."
