San Beda College hunts for its fourth straight win and a share of the lead in a showdown with listless Mapua University in the 93rd NCAA women’s volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan on Friday.

The Lady Red Spikers stake their perfect 3-0 win-loss record in their 11:00 a.m. match against the winless Lady Cardinals.

Meanwhile, College of St. Benilde and San Sebastian College collide at 12:30 p.m. with both teams looking to bounce back from setbacks.

San Beda is coming off a 25-22, 24-26, 27-25, 25-19, victory over College of St. Benilde last Tuesday for its third straight win in as many outings to move within striking distance of league-leading defending champion Arellano University (4-0).

Nieza Viray and Cesca Racraquin, who are averaging 17.3 points and 14.3 markers per game, respectively, will again spearhead the Mendiola-based squad assault against a team which lost all of its three matches.

Mapua absorbed a 24-26, 26-24, 21-25, 17-25, defeat at the hands of Lyceum of the Philippines University last week.

CSB sports a 2-1 record after seeing its two-game winning run snapped while SSC-R, which dropped its second straight five-sets match on Monday against University of Perpetual Help, holds a 1-2 slate at seventh spot.

In men’s play, the repeat-seeking Blazers (2-1) shoots for a bounce back win over the Stags (1-2) at 2:00 p.m. The Cardinals (2-1) and Red Spikers (2-1) clash at 9:30 a.m.

In the lone juniors match, CSB-La Salle Greenhills (3-0) guns for the solo lead at 3:30 p.m. against San Beda (0-2).
