Cool Smashers show they can still dominate as Valdez cheers on

With Alyssa Valdez cheering, Creamline proved it can win minus its superstar spiker even in the big stage.

The Cool Smashers improved to 4-0 without Valdez in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference and it won’t be of any surprise if they end up winning it all in the absence of the three-time UAAP MVP.

“The team is capable of winning without her,” said Creamline assistant coach Oliver Almadro after the Cool Smashers downed BaliPure in five sets in Game 1 of semifinals Saturday.

“The team is ready to play without Alyssa.”

Valdez is expected to miss the rest of the playoffs to prioritize her national team commitments but she is confident Creamline can get the job done.

After all, the Cool Smashers have easily figured out how to play sans Valdez, whose contributions are nearly impossible to replicate.
