Team Points v Individual Points

Posted by

In men’s volleyball serving is important, specifically serving to win direct points.  Servers who can score direct points are still highly sought after and for those servers, errors are ‘allowable’.  But what if those servers actually produced less overall points for a team than another server, who made less direct points and, presumably, less direct errors.

The question is …

What is more important : Team Break Points or Individual Aces?

I’m interested in your thoughts.

  1. I think that Aces are a subset of Break Points, so overall break points are more important. An interesting question would be the importance of Aces relative to other ways to score break points.
