Did you know Uchiseto is playing in Italy 2nd Division?
Uchiseto is odd. She deserves her spot, and playing time, on the NT , but she is one of a very few Japanese players I don't/can't root for. I dunno why, really. It just doesn't happen.
Sad that Miyashita may soon fade from memory. She was a major reason I took on the Japanese team. I love floor defense and I have yet to see anyone better than her (in Japan, anyway). I'm still learning how to watch/enjoy setters. Tominaga has my attention now.
Interesting that in the Hitachi v JT game last week I was more excited to see Kotoe Inoue than my other first love, Arisa Sato, doing libero duties. Last night Inoue wasn't dressed as libero, came in at two crucial moments as a serve specialist and hit a couple into the net.
I know it's ridiculous for me to complain about streams I DO GET TO SEE from some little team playing in a little sport halfway around the globe, but I do it anyway.
