Samsung needs to win their remaining 5 games in 3 or 4 sets and pray that Hyundai will lose all their remaining games. Hyundai only needs 5 points to win the regular season.

FRA M: Ngapeth has a question for the FIVB

um...did he protest as loudly during Italian tournaments in the past? really, if Poland was playing this tournament in France, we would have as unreasonable schedule as they had and, we too, would complain, but what does it matter? FIVB accepted the schedule, so Ngapeth can only blame his own federation for not fighting for this tournament's organization rights more. Reply
