Britt Herbots fired off 32 points against Korea on Wednesday, on Week 2 of the 2021 FIVB Women's Volleyball Nations League. She is the only player of this tournament so far to make the exclusive list of players who have scored 30 points or more in a single match - and she's now done it twice.
Britt Herbots does it again: 32 points against Korea
Second time in three days that the young Belgian breaks the 30-point scoring mark

Twenty-one-year-old Herbots served 2 aces, got in 4 blocks and killed 26 times from 69 attacks (38%) as she led Belgium to their third third tie-break in as many days, 3-2 (23-25, 25-23, 25-16, 19-25, 15-12).
In the same match Korea's Kim Yeon-Koung narrowly missed out on making the list herself, but stopped just short, at 27. Lee Soyoung also scored in the twenties with another 23 for Korea.
Kim already has an entry in the list, from her 31 points in Korea's four-set win over Germany in 2018.
This is the second entry of Herbots in the prestigious list. The 21-year-old had scored 33 points against the Dominican Republic on Monday.
She is the second Belgian player to feature in the list, after Kaja Grobelna's 32 points against the Netherlands in 2019.
Poland's Malwina Smarzek holds the all-time VNL record with 42 points in four sets against Bulgaria in 2019.
