PHILIPPINE volleyball superstar Alyssa Valdez was reduced into a spectator as 3BB Nakornnont demolished King-Bangkok, 26-24, 25-20, 25-23, in the Thailand Volleyball League on Sunday.
Valdez watched the game from the stands and wore a blue polo shirt to show her support to her club team in what was supposed to be her debut game in the Thai commercial league.
Before that, there was a furor over the release of Valdez's International Transfer Certificate (ITC) which was finally secured just hours before the game.
Valdez still sat out as 3BB Nakornnont improved to a 5-3 win-loss card.
The former Ateneo star and three-time UAAP MVP is instead set to make her debut on February 4 when 3BB Nakornnont faces powerhouse team Bangkok Glass bannered by Pleumjit Thinkaow.
Meanwhile, King-Bangkok, who came from a straight set loss to 3BB Nakornnonrt on January 7, fell to 2-6.
