The Brazilian men’s volleyball champions EMS Taubaté Funvic strengthened their squad with a middle blocker duo of the NCAA finalists.


A 24-year-old US middle blocker Patrick Gasman came to Taubaté for his first international volleyball experience. He has defended the colors of the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa in the last five seasons and became NCAA champion a month ago. Gasman was a member of the squads in the basic categories of the US National Team, more specifically of the Under 19 and Under 21 teams.

He’s not the only player from the last NCAA Championship that joined Superliga titleholders. Another middle blocker came. A 22-year-old Felipe Brito returned to his homeland after four years which he spent at the Brigham Young University, with whom he just lost the NCAA final against Gasman’s Hawai’i. The last club in Brazil for which Felipe played before his trip to the US college was Uberlândia/Gabarito.

GRE W: Suspended Korean player Lee Da-Yeong going to play in Greece

Excited to see Dayeong venture out to an overseas league to grow as a player! Since the Greece league is weaker than the Korean league, it'll be an opportunity to see if she can step up to the plate to lead her team as a setter, while also showing herself to other leagues for future seasons.

The twins were indefinitely suspended after the accusations made towards them about what they did back during elementary school, but they're currently in the midst of a court investigation process to prove that most of the accusations made against them were false (they acknowledged some of them and had apologized immediately & publicly for those).
Once that is resolved - hopefully soon, she should have no issues going abroad.

Heard rumours that PAOK is also looking for a foreign OH, and is looking at signing her twin sister Jaeyeong together with her as a package.
I sure hope that is true and will come to pass as well! Will be additionally fun seeing them play together, and they can rely on one another in a new foreign environment. Reply

VNL W: Preliminary stage over - China put end to USA’s invincibility, 6 players say farewell to Thailand National Team

Bless the Thai players. They share much blood, sweat and tears, many tears. They were robbed of an Olympic birth from an incompetent ref that will haunt them for the rest of their life. Reply
