2011.6.17 Weekend Picks: FIVB World League* Korea (3-3) vs. Cuba (3-3)
* Yeomju Gymnasium, Gwangju
* Saturday and Sunday, 2 p.m.
This is the final group-stage match between Korea and Cuba. They split their first meeting 1-1 last month, with Korea earning its first win over fourth-ranked Cuba since 1984.
However, Korea lost both its matches against Italy last week and remains in second place in the group D standings with a one point lead over Cuba.
Korea is led by 20-year-old rookie Jeon Kwang-in who has scored the third-most points in the tournament with 100 points in six matches. But Cuba has the equally impressive Wilfredo Leon Venero, who is tied for sixth in scoring with 96 points.
This is the last group-stage match Korea will play on home soil. The team will travel to Europe on Wednesday for remaining matches against France and Italy.
