WHY JAJA SANTIAGO WAS CHOSEN AS THE BEST PLAYER OF THE GAME?

Probably, many of you are speculating why Jaja Santiago was chosen as the best player of the game?


She was chosen…WELL, SIMPLY BECAUSE… SHE DESERVES IT!


Choosing the best player isn't measured solely by their combined number of points, but by the player’s overall performance during the game.


If you’ll look closely or watch carefully her performance all throughout the match, Jaja Santiago played an integral part of the Ageo Medic’s win against PFU. Jaja executed her role well not only as a middle blocker, but she's been digging, setting and fiercely attacking for the team. Most especially during the crucial part of the sets, she consistently made sure to rise above the occasion and deliver the points when her team needed it. Jaja Santiago is not a flashy volleyball player but she did her job and she did a good job!
