Valdez, Galang reveal their go-to type of spike

Ateneo de Manila University’s Alyssa Valdez and Ara Galang of De La Salle University are two of best and most effective wing spikers to ever take flight in the UAAP. Both brought glory to their respective schools and faced off in the championship four times. Strong, consistent and efficient, these are the traits they share when it comes to offense. But when it comes to their go-to spikes, Valdez and Galang have their preferred angles when attacking. Reacting to some of their highlight clips in the 'GaDez React' segment of the SERVE AS ONE Variety Show fundraising event for volleyball game day personnel, the top spikers shared what kind of attacks they go to achieve a high percentage of success.       “Si Coach Tai (Bundit) lagi niya akong pinagko-crosscourt,” said Valdez, a two-time UAAP champion and three-time Most Valuable Player winner. For the Phenom, hitting the ball crosscourt gives her a wider target and better chance to score.   “Sa crosscourt malaki ang area na mata-target mo kaysa sa down the line,” said the former Queen Eagle, who currently has the most points in a single game in the UAAP with 35 tied with Sisi Rondina. “Ang laki kasi ng chance na mag-out talaga sa sideline saka sa end line. ‘Pag crosscourt may check ball, ang dami mong angles na pwedeng puntahan.” While Valdez loves crosscourt hits, Galang prefers to punch her attacks down the line. “Mas madali kong nakikita (spot to attack). Ewan ko, sa pagsilip (sa anggulo),” said Galang, who shared the Season 75 MVP award with teammate Aby Marano.      Aside from her laser-like down the line spikes, Galang is also a master of cut shots. The two players also discussed about their service game. Galang likes to serve from the corner. “Siguro kasi mas kaya ko ang power. Doon ang strength kapag pwesto lang,” said the Lady Spiker. Valdez, on the other hand, puts extra effort on her service game for a specific reason.    “Kailangan kong galingan mag-serve para ‘di ko na kailangang dumepensa (sa likod),” she joked. Shifting on a lighter note, Galang reacted to her video on a skateboard while Valdez had a good laugh watching for the first time her hosting stint for University Town where she joined the multi-titled National University Pep Squad in a cheerdance routine.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
