Here's the Semifinal results from Milano Italy.

                Friday Results
            Cuba 3 Soviet Union 2
        (15-8, 10-15, 15-11, 12-15, 15-12)

            Italy 3 Netherlands 2
        (12-15, 10-15, 16-14, 15-5, 15-7)

                Tonights Games
                 Championship
                Cuba vs. Italy

                  Third Place
          Soviet Union vs. Netherlands

By the way the final is a rematch of last year.
Italy beat Cuba last year mainly on the strength of
Zorzi, an outstanding hitter.  Cuba last year was a
physically superior team (they average something like
a 42" standing vertical jump), but made passing errors,
mental errors etc.  The year of experience since will
make a big difference.  (IMHO)
