Trinidad and Tobago is the other team in Group B and the three-time defending Caribbean champions needed a miracle yesterday as their only chance to make tonight's quarter-finals was to defeat the United States.

T&T already managed to break new ground on Monday's opening day when they took a set from a north American team for the first time, in going down to the Canadians in four sets.

The nine teams are in three groups and the two group winners with the best records after the round-robin phase ended last night advanced directly into tomorrow night's semi-finals. The winners of the other group and the three runners-up will play in the two quarters tonight.
