Two things JT has going for them: Aki Momii, their new teenage setter is a big upgrade. She contributes a lot on defense, from blocking to digging; Annie Drews is not getting in the way of JT playing the kind of volleyball they like to play. Technically this JT v Toyota match wasn't high quality: 33–30% hitting and 42–32% receiving, but it was fun to watch. The Star Conference play out is going to be fun. Toray isn't at full strength yet (still missing Kurogo).
No surprise Denso beat Hisamitsu. Wish I could have seen it.
Kurobe is being a bit of a thorn in the side of other teams this year. I wish they would actually win a game or two that they fight so hard for. It was fun watching the Santiago sisters go at it. Dindin is a nice upgrade in the middle over that girl who does cartwheels after scoring a point. And Natsumi Watabiki has come out of nowhere and is having a banner year: leads the league in blocks with 30. Kurobe has played a game or two more than others, but still.
I still believe in Himeji.
