IBK 3X2 EX (25:23, 30:28, 17:25, 24:26, 15:7)
Even without Nicole, EX fought IBK off until the tie-break. In the 5th game, they lacked strenght and were beat easily.
MVP: Kim Hee-jin
KGC 3X0 GS (25:16, 25:22, 25:21)
GS were outplayed by KGC. Bethania was in.
Joycinha played great today. KGC had an awesome sideout, good digs and several spikes in counter-attacks.
The korean television has shown a screenshot with the tendency of the major hitters during the match: the percentage they used parallel, short or long diagonal. Just amazing!
After these matches, I think it's safe to say the level is much higher than last season. It goes mainly for KGC and Heungkuk.
