Spor Toto is, undoubtedly, the hit of the 2019/20 Turkish Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season!


The greatest hit of the Turkish male volleyball, probably of the volleyball in Europe in general, is Spor Toto. The team from Ankara took over the right to compete in the 2019/20 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi regular season from Maliye Piyango and thus, they are making their debut in the country’s top division. And what a debut it is for now!

Spor Toto downed nine-time champions Halkbank at home by a 3-1 (13-25, 25-23, 30-28, 28-26) to come in first in the charts with 5-0 and 15 points. They are one of the three undefeated teams in the competition. On the other hand, Halkbank are closer to fighting for Efeler Ligi survival than fighting for a playoff spot (1-4).

Ugandan Daudi Okello had one more mighty performance (28 points) for Spor Toto. He is currently the top scorer of the league when it comes to the points per set (6.24) and third-best scorer overall (106 points). Metin Toy and Moldovan Dmitrii Bahov scored 19 points apiece for Halbank. Faik Samet Güneş made 5 kill blocks.

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

If the process is obviously corrupted then it should be bypassed - FiVB should be objective, in this case they were not. Leal's deserving of the award IS the point, otherwise what is? And I doubt anyone would call FIVB shenanigans a 'process' LOL. They were clearly wrong and deserved to be called out for it. Why should Leal suffer the prejudice. Reply

Whether Leal deserved MVP award or not that is a different discussion. Don't take me wrong, he is a great player. But I am not sure how Bruno got the idea that he has the right to bypass the FIVB process and voting committee and give award he was given to someone else. This is a scandal and he should be punished for this behavior. Reply

Perhaps what will most be remembered is how Leal was snubbed of an award he rightly deserved. That was shameful. No idea why the prejudice against such a deserving player. Lube would not have w on this without Leal. Reply
