LONDON (AP) - The unbeaten U.S. women's volleyball team will get another chance at its first gold medal.

The Americans advanced to the Olympic final with a straight-set victory over South Korea on Thursday. The team will play for the title Saturday against the winner of a later semifinal between Brazil and Japan.

The top-ranked U.S. has dropped just two sets in London. In the latest victory, Destinee Hooker scored 24 points in the 25-20, 25-22, 25-22 win at Earls Court.

The American women made it to the final at the 2008 Beijing Games but settled for the silver medal after falling 3-1 to Brazil.
