The 19th edition of the Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship which is currently being hosted in the country held one of its most awaited matches yesterday. A classic volleyball clash between two of the world’s most powerful volleyball national teams, China and Japan.
The Japanese were quick to make a statement building a comfortable lead over China which they maintained for most parts of the opening set. The Chinese also failed to bag the second set as the Japanese utilized their multiple attacking options along with their signature solid defense.
The Chinese offered a challenging 3rd set as they tried to resist a quick defeat from the Japanese. The girls in blue however managed to hang on to take the thrilling 3rd set as well as the match 25-14, 25-17, 26-24.
Japan’s young guns Sarina Koga, Rika Nomoto and 2012 Olympic bronze medalist Risa Shinnabe all contributed 13 points for their team. Japan also remain undefeated in the tourney winning their first two matches and has yet to drop a set so far.
Johnvic de Guzman proved that he is worthy to be the captain of the national team as he led Blue Rajah to a thrilling five-set victory against Red Lakan in Monday night’s Clash of Heroes event at FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Many are shocked that Majoy Baron of La Salle won the MVP Award of UAAP Women’s Volleyball Tournament. They are expecting that It was a run away win already by Santiago of NU. But here us the breakdown of the MVP computation
Baron: 46 + 81 + 90 + 66 + 20 + 36 + 20 = 359 x 10 = 3,590
Morente: 60 + 90 + 40 + 73 + 44 + 20 + 51 = 378 x 10 = 3,780
Santiago: 100 + 100 + 100 + 51 + 21 + 21 + 20 = 413 x 10 = 4,130
Won games were also considered and the victories in the regular season were multiplied by 30, the result of which is added to the total that was earlier computed.
Here are the three’s points total from their respective teams’ victories:
Baron: 3,590 + (11 x 30) = 3,920
Morente: 3,780 + (12 x 30) = 4,140
Santiago: 4,130 + (7 x 30) = 4,340
Finally, the grand total is divided by the number of sets played to arrive at each player’s statistical points.
So here’s the final tally:
Baron: 3,920 ÷ 46 = 85.217
Morente: 4,140 ÷ 51 = 81.176
Santiago: 4,340 ÷ 55 = 78.909
It was clear that Morente and Santiago had the edge in statistics from offende and defense, but their chances to win the MVP award were dilluted when the number of sets played came into play.
