The Angels thus arranged a best-of-3 series with No. 4 seed BanKo in the semifinals, which begin on Wednesday.

American Janisa Johnson scored 15 points off 10 attacks and 10 kill blocks, and added 8 digs and 6 excellent receptions while Cuban Wilma Salas posted 14 points, with all but 1 coming off spikes for PetroGazz, which closed the preliminaries with a 9-1 record, the same as Creamline.

The Angels took the No. 1 seed by virtue of a higher tiebreak.
