The top-ranked U.S. women swept the Dominican Republic in an earlier quarterfinal. Brazil and Japan will play in the other semifinal on Thursday.

Fourth-ranked Italy, which was among the favorites heading into the games, came out strong but ultimately couldn't keep up with the quick No. 15 South Koreans, who won it 18-25, 25-21, 25-20, 25-18.

The South Korean players linked arms and spun around in circles on the court to celebrate the victory.
