1518 0

For the fifth time in his career, Matthew Anderson has been named the best volleyball indoor player of the year in the United States.

 

“I couldn’t be happier,” he said. “Finding the balance between training and rest was the biggest challenge this season. With very limited time off, and now age, the balance between training and rest is getting harder to find.”

Anderson started 45 out of 70 sets in the FIVB Volleyball Nations League (VNL) and 40 out of 45 sets at the World Championship. He finished the season with 327 kills (48% hitting efficiency), 35 aces and 24 blocks.

 “In 2019, I am looking forward to fighting for more medals and qualifying for the 2020 Olympics with some of my closest friends,” he said. “We have another jam-packed competition schedule and it will take all of us to accomplish our goals.”

Congratulations Matt.

Recall that two female players were named the best in the USA for 2018.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
