If in the last edition of SuperLega Credem Banca Verona Volley’s attack stood on important numbers, the credit also goes to Luca Spirito, who has made important progress in recent months. For the setter from Savona, who completed his seventh year on the banks of the Adige, the season that has just ended turned out to be the season of consecration both in terms of leadership on the pitch and in dictating playing times to his teammates. Raphael’s experience alongside him certainly played a fundamental role in his growth.
Of the 32 matches faced in all competitions, the number 13 from Verona has only missed three, thus treading the taraflex on 29 occasions. In addition to an always precise and punctual distribution that earned him the title of MVP of the match four times – with the satisfaction of being awarded best player of the championship of the month of February – he also offered his contribution in terms of points. In fact, the Ligurian playmaker grounded 53 balls, 22 of which were successful blocks. Even from nine meters he didn’t miss his contribution, with 11 aces overall.
In the first leg against Civitanova, Spirito scored the most points in a single match (6), while in both victories against Siena he was the protagonist of 3 monster blocks.
