Poland earned its first win of Week 3 action, besting South Korea across the stat sheet in an easy sweep and snapping a four-match skid as Malwina Smarzek notched 19 points.

Tandara Caixeta racked up 33 points to lead Brazil in an all-around effort in the team’s four-set win over South Korea. Meanwhile, Poland was held under 10 blocks for the first time in VNL play in a 3-0 loss to the Netherlands.
Brazil dominated all facets of the game in a 3-0 thumping of the last place Argentines, their fourth straight NVL victory. Brayelin Martinez dropped a match-high 26 points, including 24 kills, but it was not enough to lift the Dominican Republic past Turkey in a 3-1 loss.
