I have a bigger problem with the terms "5-1" or "6-2" with teams that use a libero. Think about it...
My (admittedly limited) understanding is that 5-1 refers to the team having 5 hitters and 1 setter. But the unspoken implication is that not all 5 can actually be hitters at the same time, only the 2 or 3 in the front row. What am I missing?
