Bauru players made as many as 15 errors more than rivals (28-13). How much the players of the visiting side lacked focus in the encounter shows the moment at 24-23 for Sesc in the first set. Bauru setter, one-time Olympic champion, Danielle Lins “Dani Lins” didn’t rotate well prior to her serve and gave away the point and a set to Sesc. Tandara Caixeta and Juciely Silva scored 11 points apiece for the leaders in the charts, with the latter serving 5 aces. As for Bauru, Azerbaijani Polina Rahimova put down 23 points, including 4 aces.

After losing the Paulista Championship title to São Paulo FC/Barueri, Osasco/Audax took the revenge on the state rivals and beat them by a 3-2 (25-23, 15-25, 17-25, 25-23, 10-15). Thus, Osasco maintained their unbeaten run to four games. Not even 30 points (62 attacks!) from LorenneTeixeira didn’t help Barueri. Serbian Ana Bjelica top-scored for the winning side with 14 points.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
