Romanian sensation Alexia-Ioana Căruțașu staged ferocious output for Sistem9 Yeşilyurt İstanbul in the 1st leg of the 2021 CEV Women’s Volleyball Challenge Cup semifinals.


The episode no.1 of the all-Turkish clash in the semifinals of the 2021 Women’s Challenge Cup between THY İstanbul and Sistem9 Yeşilyurt İstanbul went in the favor of the latter: 3-2 (29-31, 25-19, 23-25, 25-21, 15-10).

An output that Romanian teenager Alexia-Ioana Căruțașu staged today is rarely seen on a high level such as in some of the European club competitions. The 17-year-old opposite hitter, who slipped out of the hands of VakıfBank (they hired her when she was 15 but kept her for only one season), chipped in 47 points! Căruțașu attacked as many as 89 times (!), having 45 % effectiveness. She included 5 blocks in her output, just as Zeynep Sude Demirel.

American Madison Kingdon Rishel scored 25 points on the losing side. Berin Yıldırım had 70 % reception (20 digs, 1 error, 25 % excellent), while Aslı Kalaç and Özge Nur Çetiner set up 4 blocks apiece. The rematch is scheduled for tomorrow.

ITA M: Perugia focused on bringing Grbić

He signed a 2-years contract with Zaksa last year. He won Polish Cup with them, not sure what happened so Zaksa lost the championship. They kicked out Lube and Zenit from the Champions League and have a good chance of becoming European champion although Trentino didn't win anything this year so this is their last chance.
He started his coaching career with Perugia so everything is possible... Reply

Unfortunately there is no future for Russell. He is old and after this operation, he cannot recover and remain the same level before :( Reply

USA M: Russell undergoes surgery in US, will miss Tokyo Olympics

Russell had one of the best sports surgeons in the world work on him so I expect he will be in great hands. While devastating for any athlete Russell is young enough to have both Paris and Los Angeles in his Olympic future at very high level.
Piacenza is building something very special there and Russell is a perfect type of player and professional to attract others to come there and build around.
Wishing him a full and speedy recovery. Reply
