The competition for the top scorer in the men’s professional volleyball team is heading toward a three-way match.
OK Financial Group’s Leo scored 535 points this season and is challenging for the fourth highest scorer in his career, while KEPCO’s Thais (510 points) and Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance’s Ikbairi (503 points) are chasing after Leo.
Leo won the top scorer in the 2012-2013, 2013-2014, and 2014-2015 seasons during the Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance era. He led Samsung Fire’s attack with a powerful attack and excellent stamina.
In particular, Leo set a new record of 1284 points during the 2014-2015 season. This is a record that ranks second for the most points in a season following Keita (1285 points) in the 2021-2022 season.
Leo has been showing excellent scoring skills this season as well. He has a 51.94% attack success rate with a high attack share of 45.48%. Although the prime of his 20s has passed, he is still regarded as one of the best strikers in the V-League.
Leo is averaging 26.75 points per game. In the match against Samsung Fire on December 2 last year, he scored 38 points, the most in his personal game, and also achieved the triple crown in 4 consecutive games for the first time in the history of the V-League this season.
3rd place OK Financial Group (11 wins, 9 losses, 33 points) is aiming to recapture the 2nd place with Leo’s performance at the forefront.
Tais played for Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance in the 2016-2017, 2017-2018, and 2018-2019 seasons before joining KEPCO ahead of this season.
He is showing an uneasy appearance, such as KEPCO winning 1 win after 9 consecutive losses, but Thais is showing unrelenting performance. His attack success rate is also 55.01%, which is the highest in the league. 카지노사이트
KEPCO, along with the Thais, has good offensive power such as Seo Jae-deok, Shin Young-seok, and Park Chul-woo, but is struggling due to a relatively weak defense. If only the receive survives, Thais’ attack power can be further increased.
Tais is aiming for the third top scorer in his career following the 2016-2017 and 2018-2919 seasons.
