The path to the V1 title is clear for Jaja Santiago and JT Marvelous.

 

After a 25-18, 25-21, 23-25, 25-23 win over the Okayama Seagulls Sunday, JT Marvelous ended the 2023-24 V.League regular season with a spotless 22-0 record.

 

JT Marvelous now needs two more knockout wins to sweep the whole tournament.

 

In the V.Final Stage, JT Marvelous await either Jaja Santiago’s former team in the Saitama Ageo Medics or Jia De Guzman and the Denso Airybees.

 

Against the Seagulls, Jaja posted 17 points off of 14 attacks and three blocks.

 

For the whole regular season, Jaja is no. 1 in attacks, blocks, total blocks (67), and tied for second in total aces (17).

 

The complete V.Final Stage feature JT Marvelous (22-0), defending champion NEC Red Rockets, Hisamitsu Springs, Saitama Ageo Medics, Denso Airybees, and the Toyota Auto Body Queenseis. 

 

 

Jia De Guzman’s first V1 regular season is done, and the former Creamline star appeared in 41 sets across 22 games, tallying eight total points (four attacks, one block, three aces).
