Jia was born to be a setter at setter ang posisyon nya since time immemorial.
Si Perez... pinagpipilitan lang. Converted from open spiker, kaya di nya pa rin maalis yung tendency nya na sa 2nd ball eh gusto na nya agad maka score.
Morado has talent, in the long run, I would go with her, rather than J. ferrer.
Pero teka masama yata ang loob ni BK kasi makinis ang legs ni Jia kumpara sa paborit setter nya na si Kim nyahahaha...
Magaling si Kim at magaling din si Jia kaya kung sino man manalo sa dalawa as best setter ay parehong deserving...Pero si BK hate agad kay Jia ampness..
BK sundutan mo pa ng Baygon multi insect killer pa ra solve ang galit mo sa mga statician at kay Jia... bwahahaha
I think jia is showing why she received multiple best setter awards (including shakey's girls(2x) vleague and palarong pambansa etc) despite suffering an acl last year. I wonder lang kung fully recovered na sya from her injury. Anyway, Hindi naman siguro porket rookie sya e hindi na nya kayang makipagsabayan sa mga veterans.
Funny that a thread that intends to generate negativity turned out to be positive after all. I therefore conclude this attempt is an epic failure para sa TS. haha! Parang naging appreciation thread pa for Jia and syempre for Kim; who are definitely the best setters for this season so far.
Para kay Jia, achievement nya na siguro na sya ang primary setter ni Coach Tai, when she has more "veteran" setters-team mates in Faustino and G. Tan. Ibang trust and confidence yun tapos natulungan nya ang team na ma-maintain yung F4 achievement when almost everybody, including supporters thought they wont make it to the F4 this season because of obvious and inevitable circumstances. Yung maging 2nd best kay Kim is something as well.
Naisip ko lang, it won't take too long; babalik tayo sa thread na ito and we will just laugh about this. Syempre ganun pa rin, ma-aapreciate pa rin natin si Jia and Kim as well. That's life =)
I think jia is really a good setter, considering she's a rookie, for sure mas gagaling pa yan sa mga susunod na season.
19 excellent sets lang si Fajardo in today's game. Congratulations Jia Morado! Ang galing niyo TMX sports!
Nakakatawa lang talaga yung ibang tao dito. Remember yung season wherein Hiponia was leading all the time as #1 setter sa stats at madami ring nagrereklamo? Don't tell me hokus pokus lang yun din yun at gusto ng Ateneo manalo si Hiponia? Hayaan nalang natin ang statisticians dahil mas alam nila yan ginagawa nila. Lahat naman yan may specific formula/requisites na sinusunod.
As for today's game, I AM NOT SURPRISED AT ALL. Ilang beses kayang pinalitan ni Esperanza si Fajardo, at sa huddles palang ilang beses naring sinasabon ni Coach Ramil si Kim.
19 lang in 4 sets? Kalokohan!
So sa total na 40 attacks ng DLSU, 19 lang don ang galing sa excellent sets ni Fajardo. 21 galing sa excellent sets ng DLSU in total. Kalokohan.
Even so you cannot take away the fact that coach ramil singled her out a lot of times during huddles which means that si coach na mismo ng dlsu ang nakakapansin na may something "off" sa setting ni kim kanina especially sa first 2 sets.
Anyways I don't want to argue further with you since you have your own belief na hinohokus pokus ng ateneo ang award na to para manalo si Jia? But for me she's a good setter, showed steady nerves & consistency on her 1st year despite having acl injury pre-season. I'd take her any day to replace Loren Lantin of UST or Ivy Perez of NU. Yung blocking maiimprove naman niya yan cause di naman siya ganun kaliit pero yung innate setting ability hindi lahat ng tao may ganun.
And most important thing is hindi namiss ng Ateneo ang pagkawala ni Ferrer, as the season progressed nakaalis na siya totally sa shadow ni Jem and she's now making a name for herself.
Up for this thread!
Official ng nagpatuloy ang dayaan today at matatapos ang hokuspokus bukas!!!
jia morado needs
11 for 3 sets
19 for 4 sets
26 for 5 sets
to bag the best setter award...
19 excellent sets lang si Jia today. same with Sy and mas mataas pa ang percentage ni Sy sa kanya. sayang. haha.
So does that mean she will get the award?
nope, Kim Fajardo gets the Award, DLSU fans talon-talon na
So sana tigilan na ng iba ang pangingisay. hahaha. SUSKO po!
