This study analyzed all the games (n=253) from the 2011/2012 and 2012/2013 Seasons of Brazilian SuperLeague Women’s Volleyball, to identify the game-related factors that discriminate in favor of winning and losing teams. In the 2011/2012 Season, the Total Shares Setting (TAL) and Total Points Attack (TPA) were factors that discriminated in favor of a defeat. The factors that determined the victory were the Total Shares Serve (TAS), Total Shares Defense (TAD), Total Shares Reception (TAR) and Total Defense Excellent (TDE). In the 2012/2013 Season, the factor (TAD) most often discriminated in favor of victory and the factor that led to defeat was the Total Points Made (TPF). The scoring skills (TPA) and (TPF) discriminated against the final outcome of the game, but surprisingly are associated with defeat and the (TAS) supposed to victory. The non-scoring skills (TAD), (TAR) and (TDE) discriminate the end result of the game and this may be associated with the victory. The non-scoring skill (TAL) determines the outcome of the game and is supposedly associated with the defeat.
