According to the website of the event, the Cuban attack was led by Henry Bell and Raidel Corrales, with 12 points apiece.

The United States and Puerto Rico, fourth and sixth-place finishers at the World Cup last year in Japan, are Cuba's main rivals on this occasion.

In other results on Sunday, the Americans swept the Dominican Republic in straight sets and Canada did the same with Trinidad and Tobago also in three sets.

Eight teams are taking part in the event divided into two groups. Pool A is comprised of United States, Dominican Republic, Barbados and host Puerto Rico while Pool B includes Cuba, Canada, Mexico and Trinidad and Tobago.
