The U.S. Men’s Junior National Team can no longer win the gold medal or clinch a berth to the FIVB U21 World Championship, but it still has an opportunity for a podium finish.

The United States following its semifinal loss will play Canada in the bronze-medal match at the NORCECA U21 Continental Championship. This will be a rematch of the de facto Group B title match earlier this week that featured Stanford opposite Jaylen Jasper finishing with 11 aces in the U.S. win.

Both Cuba and the Dominican Republic will meet in the gold-medal match and have already clinched this tournament’s two berths to the upcoming World Championship.
