Team of the Week: Minas

This round’s win was Minas‘ 5th straight 3-0 triumph, as the team now spots the competition’s third highest set average. It’s safe to say that after a rocky start, Minas‘ squad is definitely starting to click and may become a lock for a semifinals spot in the playoffs.

Player of the Week: Destinee Hooker

Hooker’s play still oscillates from game to game, but when she delivers, she does it in style. This round, she put up very impressive offensive numbers, which allowed Minas to do quick work of Bauru in 3 fast sets. Hooker also caught the attention of the media by gifting her match MVP trophy to Bauru‘s Tifanny Abreu in a gesture of solidarity in face of the latter’s latest backlash from fans after becoming the first trans volleyball player to play in Brazil’s top tier league.
