LONG BEACH – Long Beach State’s TJ DeFalco and Kyle Ensing are set to open the inaugural FIVB Volleyball Nations League (VNL) with the U.S. Men’s National Team, which is ranked No. 2 in the world, on Friday, May 25 at 1 a.m. (PT) in Ningbo, China.
The current Beach duo will be joined by former Long Beach State All-American Dustin Watten on the 14-man travel roster as they compete this summer.
The VNL format is similar to the format for FIVB World League as three teams travel to a different location each weekend and play a round robin, then move on to the next country for five straight weekends.
