[August 15, 2008]  BEIJING (AP) -- The U.S. men's volleyball team remains undefeated at the Beijing Olympics with a 3-1 victory over Bulgaria.

The United States was cold at the start Thursday night, but took the next two sets and held off Bulgaria in the end, 27-29, 25-21, 25-14, 26-24 in round-robin pool play.

The U.S. men are the only undefeated team in their pool. Bulgaria fell to 2-1.

The United States remained without head coach Hugh McCutcheon, who is with his family after his father-in-law was fatally stabbed while at a popular Beijing tourist site last weekend. His mother-in-law was badly wounded.

Assistant Ron Larsen is serving as interim head coach.
