2011.11.18 Weekend Picks: V-League* Daejeon Samsung Fire Bluefangs (6-0) at Cheonan Hyundai Capital Skywalkers (2-5)
* Yu Gwan-sun Gymnasium, Cheonan, South Chungcheong
* Sunday, 2 p.m.
The two biggest rivals in men’s volleyball clash again as the Skywalkers look to avenge their first-round defeat to the Bluefangs at home.
The Skywalkers, two-time league champions, are still struggling this season under rookie coach Ha Jong-hwa, but are starting to regain their stride with the return of left attacker Moon Sung-min.
The Bluefangs are on a six-game winning streak, thanks to first-round MVP Gavin Schmitt, who compiled 222 points in the last six games.
It will also be interesting to watch how Schmitt and fellow Canadian Dallas Soonias compete against each other. Soonias has gained his attacking rhythm by scoring 45 points against Suwon KEPCO 45 on Wednesday.
