BEIJING — The U.S. men's volleyball team remained unbeaten in Beijing by defeating Japan in three sets to wrap up preliminary pool play.

With the 25-18, 25-12, 25-21 win Monday, the U.S. team finishes atop its pool with five wins in advance of the quarterfinals on Wednesday.

Japan, already eliminated before the match, finishes after going 0-5 in the Olympic competition.

The United States was playing its second match with coach Hugh McCutchen on the sidelines. The coach missed the team's first three matches after his in-laws were attacked in Beijing.
