"I didn't think anything we did tonight was that great," Speraw said. "Nothing stands out to me as it relates to us doing anything particularly well. We started passing in Game 1, but it kind of fell apart there. We didn't serve great and we certainly didn't block or dig well. Our offense clearly has potential to be good. Even as poorly as we played tonight, we hit .329, which should beat most teams in the United States. But when you don't defend and serve like we need to serve in order to be successful, you allow a team to hit .494 and that's rough."

Speraw said he was displeased that his team could not pull out Game 3 and extend the match.

"I have to admit I was really hoping, for the great fan support that we got, we'd at least be able to push it to four [sets] and give [the fans] a thrill," Speraw said.

"It was a great environment and I loved that everyone came out," Speraw said. "I'm sorry that we weren't able to provide them with a better match. But we're going to learn from it."
