Hyundai Capital Skywalkers returned the national title home after a decade!
No.2 Skywalkers became Korean Men’s volleyball Championship (NH Nonghyup Professional Volleyball 2016-2017 V-League) winners for the first time after the season 2006/2007, third time overall.
The team from Cheonan won the playoff finals against Regular Season champions Korean Air Jumbos by a 3-2, prevailing in a decider on the road – 3-1 (24-26, 27-25, 25-22, 25-20).
Jumbos’ fans will now surely regret for Game 2 of the series when their players dropped 2-0 lead in sets after previously taking Game 1. Thus, Skywalkers beat the odds which say that a team who wins opening game of the finals has more than 83% chance to ultimately become champion.
Skywalkers opposite Moon Sung-Min was awarded MVP of the finals, finishing Game 5 with 23 points. Croatian receiver Danijel Galić added 17 for the new title holders. As for Jumbos, Slovenian opposite Mitja Gasparini scored 31 points, while receiver Jung Ji-Seok contributed with 14.
