Bannered by Yuki Ishii and Risa Sinnabe, Hisamitsu banged in a total of 45 attacks and defended well enough to limit PSL-F2’s kill count to 30.

“Hisamitsu is a very organised team in my opinion,” said PSL-F2 Logistics coach Moro Branislav.

“But for me the important game is tomorrow. I believe in my team. We have a chance (against Bangkok Glass),” he added.

Eczasibasi has won all its four matches so far and will face the winner between Volero Zurich-Pomi Casalmaggiore for the title.

Boskovic led Eczasibasi with 22 points with Kosheleva and Pallesi contributing 13 and 12, respectively.

Eczacibasi VitrA Istanbul coach Massimo Barbolini had earlier praised the locals of PSL-F2 Logistics Manila after their game Friday night, where the powerhouse Turkish club won in four sets, 25-17, 25-17, 23-25, 25-14.
