Korean V-league has always been far from scandals so, despite the fact it was a scandal only inside one club, the case of U.S. player Kennedy Bryan who was ignored by her teammates in Hi-pass and forced to leave, was a huge surprise. The player that came instead of Bryan, her compatriot Hillary Hurley, debuted with 14 points, the most in her team, so maybe it is a sign things will get better for last-placed club in the V-league standings. Still, Hi-pass lost to GS Caltex Kixx 3-0 (25-18, 25-18, 25-16) where Canadian Alexa Gray had 25.
Men’s champions Rush&Cash suffered eighth consecutive defeat, making play-off hopes very low. Led by 33 points from Belarussian Artur Udrys, KB Stars prevailed despite 30 of Moroccan Mohamed Al Hachdadi, on the other side.
