The individual performance of prospect American opposite hitter Jordan Thompson became a topic in the volleyball world in the last 24 hours.

 

The 22-year-old opposite Thompson, who is playing her final college year at the University of Cincinnati women’s volleyball team – the Bearcats, made a stunning single-game scoring output last night. In the NCAA Division I match against the UConn Huskies, which her team won by a 3-2, Thompson put down 51 points (50 kills and one ace)!

Thompson broke the single-match scoring record of the conference in which her team is competing - the American Athletic Conference and became just the seventh player in NCAA Division I history to score 50 or more points in a match, the first after 20 years. Breaking records is not unordinary for her as she broke two records last year: the record of her university for single-season kills (827) and the NCAA record for kills per set (6.27).

Thompson made her debut for the U.S. National Team this summer in the FIVB Volleyball Nations League in which she made some striking displays such as the one against Brazil. Ultimately, she won the gold medal in the event. Next season, Thompson will exit her collegiate career and will be ready to sign her first professional contract. After the way she has been playing in the last few months, we are sure that numerous top-level teams in Europe and beyond will try to secure her signature...

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply

VNL must be an event that helps new players gain experience so that they can later join their country's first team. Serbia has always participated with its 2nd or 3rd team. The big tournaments are the Olympics Games, the World Championships and the continental championships. No one remembers who won the vnl. Ask a player to answer please. All for money fivb!!! Reply

Serbian women had poor results in 2019 vnl (5W-10L) which has cost them to drop the 6th place.

Turkish women had 11W-4L in 2019 vnl. And beat China in final round though later lost to them in semifinal, it's still plus for them because you win more points defeating an opponent above you but lose less points when you are defeated.
