 Cuba remains unbeaten by topping Canada in four sets at NORCECA men's champs
Rolando Jurquin had 13 kills and Oreol Camejo and Raydel Corrales added 10 each, leading Cuba to a 25-22, 22-25, 25-23, 25-18 victory over Canada in the NORCECA men's volleyball championships Tuesday.

Roberlandy Simon had five blocks for Cuba (3-0), which finished unbeaten in Group B and drew a bye into Thursday night's semifinals.

Dallas Soonias had a tournament-high 20 kills and Murray Grapentine made six blocks for Canada (2-1), which advanced to Wednesday night's quarter-finals.

Canada had a chance to force a fifth game after rallying from a 10-6 deficit to take a 14-13 lead, but Simon and Corrales had two kills each during a 7-1 flurry that gave Cuba a 20-15 lead.

The top two finishers in the tournament at the Anaheim Convention Center will join 10 other national teams in November in Japan at the FIVB World Cup, which will help determine the berths for the 2008 Olympic Games.
