Rule 10-4-3 states that a player redesignated as libero must have a unique number not worn by any teammate.
Rule 4-2-3 states that each player must be identified by a number on the uniform top which is not a duplicate of a teammate's number.

Combining these rules implies that the team you specified has violated the rules and exhibited bad sportsmanship. Rule 4-2-3 is the primary reason. The players are now wearing numbers that are duplicates of teammates.
I just got a response from our state association. They say "no rule violation".
