Menzel Leads Team USA to Second Straight Win at World University Games
UC Santa Barbara volleyball All-American Jeff Menzel has played a key part in each of Team USA's first two wins at the World University Games in Shenzhen, China.
After pacing the U.S. squad with 15 kills and a .407 hitting percentage in a 3-0 tournament-opening win over Mexico, Menzel was at it again in a 25-18, 25-9, 25-20 domination of Turkey on Saturday.
For the second straight match, Menzel led Team USA with nine kills and a hitting percentage of .533. He also had one block and a service ace and his 11 total points were second on the team.
Menzel and his U.S. teammates will try to improve on their perfect 2-0 record when they play the Czech Republic on Monday. The contest will begin at 3:00 a.m. (PDT).
