    I guess it was too much burden for Jung Ho Young previous seasons played as wing spiker, because she was dubbed as "the next KYK" since high school...

    That title seem too much for her and blocked her performances and improvement, made her warm the bench most of the time...

    But now as MB she looks more "happy" and play more "freely"... New MB to add to NT if she can keep her performance....

    Hi-Pass n Hillstate racing to make record of consecutive wins... Their match up should be fire... Hillstate has made 8 wins since lost to Hi-Pass.. If they can keep it up, they can Hi-Pass when they match up.... It's like the league becoming a contest just between the 2 of them, "milking" pts from the other teams....:D

    I find it interesting that Kixx benched both their senior MB (Kim YuRi and Han Soo Ji) full time... Kim YR already benched in the last few matches.. are they not fit or the coach want to form new MB formation? It seems good.. The "new" MBs are not bad...


    if player contract 3 yrs, Go Ye-Rim is gonna be FA at the end of this season.. Will Hillstate re-sign her ? Considering Jung Ji Yun play well and can be full time starter...

    Hi-Pass v KGC:

    - I think it's the first time since after LJY that a local player share the same amounts of swings with the foreigner.. PJA is really soaring after OG. She's the best OH for now....

    - Lee SY is getting worse to the point she's becoming "cheerleader" for Jelena like Choi Eun Ji for Diouf in the previous seasons... That's not good..

    - I'm impressed on Hi-Pass veteran MBs duo.. They topple Yang HJ-Lee DH in block pts...

    It looks like Peppers has some improvements in the last 2 matches..

    Park Eun Soo, if she's consistent, has chance to be this season's best rookie...

    On the other hand, Lee Han Bi has no improvement.. She seems getting worst instead... May be they should try other OH to refresh...


    In PS, Bell has become the next Diouf, with the amount of swings she has...They don't have LJY replacement to share the scoring... I hope Bell can maintain her health and stamina...

    I also notice that Kim hae Ran on the bench in the last few matches.. So she's not the main Li anymore, but reinforcement....or is she not fit?

    I was wondering why Yeum HS on the tribune.. so that's why she was also played for short time in previous match....


    It's not a good match to watch... I see Bell everywhere.. It's like she's the only one who perform well...

    It baffled me that she's not the MVP.. sometimes I question how they pick the MVP...


    For those who can read Korean's hangeul, I'm curious what is the number they put on screen in red fonts everytime a player about to serve?

    It looks like some kind of rank.. Bell is 1, Yang HJ is 7 if I'm not mistaken.. Rank for what? Does anyone know?

    Well, seems the new coach has an effect for Altos.. They are more "lively"..Though lost straight set, at least not "slaughtered" Kim Su Ji got few blocks and aces, not only 1...:D

    I don't get why Santana only played half a set each set.. Is she not fit? She's not bad, maybe can make a difference if she played full time...

    Kim Hee Jin also more active as full time wing spiker...

    Tbh. I think both team have the same strength, and Altos has slightly stronger players... but has Bell that made the difference for PS....

    Contrary to the last match, reading stats of this match make it more impressive...especially after watching full replay...

    It's normal for Yang HJ has a high success rate in scoring (though >60% is above her avg), it's surprising for Lee Da Hyeon had that high efficiency...

    6 aces from 5 players.. And If I'm not mistaken Kim Da In had 50% efficiency on her sets...

    And for KGC, Ko Ui Jeong stats are also impressive... and I agree she and Jung HY should've played sooner..

    Is Yeum HS not their main setter anymore?.. She was subbed in twice, and both time she only played short time, before subbed out again....Is she injured or something?


    For Hillstate, Jeong Ji Yung becoming "motivator" for both Hwang MK and Go YR... I'm guessing they working hard in their performance, because they might be replaced by Jeong JY as starter if they are not good....^^

    Reading the stats, somehow make it worse... no 2 digits scoring player in Altos..

    Kixx is also not so good... I think the last 2 matches Kang SH had bad performances.. They became too relied to Moma whose dangerously became the next Diouf....Lutz was supported by Kang SH and Lee SY..

    Hi-Pass continues its winning streak since pointed the "rookie" main setter... impressive.. Is she trained by LHH personally as her successor?


    So, there are currently 3 parts of the standings:

    - Hillstate, Kixx, KGC, n Hi-pass fighting for top of the rank n play-off..

    - PS n Altos fighting for 5th rank

    - Peppers the source of "bonus" pts for other teams...

    Altos just won "easily" with the shortest time play this season... Not sure it's because of this new acting coach.. Well, it's against Peppers...

    I feel kind of sorry for Peppers.. They become punching bag to gain easy points for the other teams... The head coach was inactive too long, that he has no "magic" left that made SK 4th place in 2012 Olympics...

    Hillstate is really the strongest team for now in my book... I'm kind of amaze with their floor defense.. It's like every player in Hillstate has been diligently practicing digs...Even their MBs are good at digs,. Adding their "wall" in front of the net...

    Kim Da In's style is more or less like LDY, especially the long cross toss from right to left that have high success rate.. Really like LDY..

    I'm glad Jung Ji Yun is getting sharper and sharper on her spikes.

    They shouldn't lost the 3rd set...

    It's coincidental that KGC won the 3rd when Yeum HS is replaced.... Though they couldn't do much in the 4th set....

    So their win vs PS was just a "fluke".. PS hasn't form a solid team, and Altos has more experienced players.. nothing to do with KSN ...

    but then they met more solid teams with good coach, while KSN is still inexperienced acting head coach, so they lost both in a row.. Being a head coach is hard..

    KSN is only "acting" with 0 experience with, I'm only guessing, limited knowledge on tactics and team management.. Also leading a messed up team..


    I don't think any outside known coach want to become the Head Coach, with that situation on the club.. Altos only option is promoting one of those assistant coaches.. I wonder if Nam Ji Yeon is still there and whether she took courses for coaching..
