In the professional volleyball V-League, the performance of the setters emerged as a variable in the ranking fight in the second half.
In the case of the men’s team, the main setters who left the team returned and played a big role, clearly proving the saying that ‘volleyball is setter play’.
Korean Air, the leader of the men’s division, left the team after the main setter, Han, was diagnosed with Corona 19 at the end of last year.
Due to this, in the home game on the 29th of last month, backup setter Yoo Kwang-woo played instead, and at that time, Korean Air struggled to win after a full set match against the lowest ranked Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance.
In the first game of the new year, where Han player was not released from quarantine, he was defeated by OK Financial Group (January 1) with a set score of 0-3. It was the first time that Korean Air suffered a shutout loss without winning a single set this year.
However, in the return match against OK Financial Group on the 4th, Korean Air, where Han returned, immediately avenged the loss by winning with a set score of 3-0.
KB Insurance, where the main setter Hwang Taek-eui returned, also prepared a clue for a rebound.
At KB Insurance, Hwang Taek-eui recently returned after being absent for nearly two months due to poor physical condition following knee and back injuries. 토토
Hwang Taek-eui returned from the Woori Card match held on the 6th and led the team to a set score 3-0 victory. KB Insurance was completely defeated with a set score of 0-3 in the previous confrontation with Woori Card, but when Hwang Taek-eui returned, the team changed 180 degrees.
In particular, KB Insurance, which stayed in the lower ranks due to the long absence of the main setter, was able to hold a glimpse of hope for ‘Spring Volleyball’ by predicting a rebound in the second half with the return of Hwang Taek-eui.
In the women’s division, Heungkuk Life Insurance, which is in hot pursuit of leading Hyundai E&C, showed its will to win by signing setter Lee Won-jung through a trade on the 27th of last month.
Heungkuk Life Insurance upgraded its power by recruiting Lee Won-jung, who can relieve the burden of main setter Kim Da-sol and change the atmosphere when he is shaken.
As the flow of the game is controlled at the fingertips, professional volleyball is expected to have mixed feelings for each team according to the performance of the main setters in the second half.
