US Men prep to qualify for London

While the U.S. men's volleyball team hasn't yet secured a trip to London, no one is panicking.
The men, who have gone to seven straight Olympics, are confident as the defending gold medal winners going into their upcoming continental qualification tournament. But the team has added reason for the self-assurance: The event is being played on home soil.
Eight teams will vie for a coveted spot in the London Games at the NORCECA Olympic qualification tournament, starting Monday at the Walter Pyramid in Long Beach, Calif. It is the first time that the United States has hosted the event.
NORCECA is the North America, Central America and Caribbean volleyball confederation, representing 35 countries. It stages the continental championships, as well as the Olympic and World Championship zone qualification tournaments.
