Philippine Volleyball Today (January 19, 2019)

Voting for the Japanese V.League All-Star voting is under way and both Jaja Santiago and Marck Espejo deserve to be included in the fan selection team. Espejo, together with Yakan Guma and Katsu Masaya, are leading the charge for Oita Miyoshi. Meanwhile, Santiago is a major contributor for an Ageo Medics squad that is still in contention for a Final 8 spot. The UAAP Season 80 MVP is also in the top ten in spike success rate and service aces.

We have the power to place them in the All-Star team by voting for them once a day. We can also send in Dindin Santiago-Manabat if we can pull enough votes. The challenge though is that the app for voting is in Japanese. Thus, we’ll place the link on how to vote here until the February 24 deadline.
