Jaja Santiago bounces back as Ageo Medics boost top four chance in V.League

Jaja Santiago and Saitama Ageo Medics boosted their final round chances after claiming their fourth consecutive victory, Sunday.

Saitama defeated Hitachi in straight sets, 25-20, 25-18, 25-23, in the 2020-21 Japan V.League Division 1 women’s tournament at the Hitachinaka Sports Park Gymnasium.

The Filipina import bounced back from her subpar outing yesterday, pouring 13 points built on 11 spikes and two blocks. The NU product also had an effective night in the attacking department with a 61.1 percent efficiency rate.

Ageo Medics leader Mami Uchiseto was on point anew with 17 points to her name, while Yuri Yoshino had 13.

Shainah Joseph was the fourth Saitama player in double figures with 11 markers.

Ageo Medics rose to 11-8, good for fifth place, while Denso Airybees are at fourth seed behind a 10-7 slate with two games left.

Due to unequal games, the rankings heading into the final round will be determined via winning percentage.

Hannah Tap led the Rivale with 17 points on 14 attacks and three blocks while Fuyumi Okumu Oba dropped 12 markers.

Hitachi slid to 5-14.

Saitama will close the regular round against the third-place NEC Red Rockets on Sunday, Feb. 14, 10 am, at the Plaza Ishikawa.
