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.

ITALIAN CUP M: Perugia retain the trophy after being down 2-0, Lube’s another fail in the final…

Leon is currently the best outside hitter in the world.
Modena is in trouble with Christenson's injury, they desperately need 1st class outside hitter, that is their weakest spot.
Lube has 'too many stars' syndrome coupled with the psychological issue of losing 7 finals in the row.
Trentino and Perugia are the best and their games are decided by what kind of day they have on the court but either team can win. Reply
