Brazilian League 2014/2015

  • If I understood right Brazilian commentator said Carcases has played in Japan.. But she hasn't right? Last season was her first with Volero, and now in osasco


    She did. She had the permission to leave Cuba in 2005-2006, when she played for Hisamitsu Springs. Many cubans played abroad those years, even without leaving NT.


    Anyway you should check Wikipedia, it really helps. https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenia_Carcaces

  • Why is Amanda wearing a libero shirt?


    With the new rule of having 14 players and two liberos, Bernardo decided to put Drussyla as OH #4 instead of Amanda, and so Amanda became libero. She has played as a starter in a few matches this week.
    I think maybe she is becoming libero soon

  • She did a pretty good job taking over Fabi's. She has the edge of becoming a good libero because she has heights. You can train agility, speed, and accuracy (which Fabi has mastered very well), but you can't train heights (which Fabi and all the other liberos lack). I think having a slightly tall libero might have some advantage because of the distance they can reach.

  • I heard Gabi, Mari, and Carcases were destroying Brasiliara. Any news?

  • With yesterday's results, Rexona and SESI garanteed 1st and 2nd place.


    I believe Rexona will rest Fofão next two games.

  • Tandara is a bit over weight right now...cause of the pregnancy of course, dont know..she didnt make a good game yesterday....dont know if it was coincidence, but Im not sure if she will be in shape to play till the end of season like that....

  • It's not like Praia has a lot of time left in the league this season anyway... :roll:

  • OMG! :super:


    I didn't pregnant women could still play volleyball. :D


    In the early stages they sure can (of course depends on the body). I remember that years ago Yuliya Shelukhina (ex-Atom Trefl Sopot's MB) was playing Polish Championships finals when she was 5 months pregnant. Nafta Pila lost to Muszyna in 5 games.

  • 2º Phase -

  • With yesterday win for São Caetano, Its known all 8 teams qualified for Playoffs, positions can change, but I think that hardly they will...maybe only among Minas and Praia....but still wouldnt change the confrontation....so Quarter Finals likely be like:


    Rexona-Ades x São Cristovão Saúde/São Caetano
    SESI-SP x Brasília Vôlei
    Molico/Nestlé Osasco x Pinheiros
    Camponesa/Minas x Dentil/Praia Clube


  • How many matches must win Team to get Semi ticket?


    http://superliga.cbv.com.br/in…eonato/sistema-de-disputa


    according to the regulation of Superliga, best two of three games will conducted to decide the final 4 during Quaterfinals and the ultimate finalists from Semifinals.
    the big final will be only one game.


    PLAY-OFFS OF FINAL EIGHT


    UPPER ZONE
    RR 1 vs RR 8
    RR 4 vs RR 5


    LOWER ZONE
    RR 3 vs RR 6
    RR 2 vs RR 7

    i may not be the tallest,
    the fastest, or the strongest,
    but at least i can do one thing better than anyone else,
    to be me...


  • Exactly! Best of three Games in Quarter Finals and Semifinals, and Final in just one match (in the home of the best placed team in Regular Phase playing the final)

  • Rexona lost invencibility yesterday against SESI at home.


    Een though the game worth nothing in the Standings, both teams fought a lot for every match and it was very balanced game.


    For Rexona side, we played quite poor. It was weird cause the team showed to be very unfocused, making stupid errors, and Gabi really is worring me, she really under performed last two games. She has been making such good league so far...but she played bad against Osasco and again yeterday. Though is if it was a mental problem to focus, or if she is getting tired after all she had played all games so far.


    the good side for Rexona the team fought and showed a good energy ahead the home crowed, and even if they wasnt playing well they try to keep going for it. Also, These last two games were really good for the team to prepare the bench. Roberta, Mayhara, Regis and maily Drussily gained a lot of confidence. I dont know if Drussyla will every be more than a promise, but this girl has atitude! She is just 18 years old, but yesterday she played like a veteran. She has a lot of beach volleyball skills, so she has very good reflection in defense, and good inteligence in attack. And she is not afraid, she sure made Rexona fans happy yesterday.


    Another good new is the return of Natália. She had felt pains in her sholder and were away in last two games. She is still out of game play, but it was important to have her back for the playoffs.


    For Sesi, as usual, killing Fabiana...she knows fofao so well, that was actually easier for our attackers to play with Roberta (Never though Id say that..hehehe). But as in the game against Osasco, Fofão only played a sete and a half, it was something Bernardinho decided to do before games, since we had already 1st place garanteed.


    And I promises myself I wouldnt talk about the referees from yesterday, but really. :aww:
