San Beda University and University of Perpetual Help seek back-to-back victories when they face their respective foes on Tuesday in the NCAA Season 95 women’s volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Coming off a season-opening win, the Lady Red Spikers look to spark a winning streak in a showdown with San Sebastian College at 2:00 p.m. after the Lady Altas’ duel with Lyceum of the Philippines University at 12:00 noon.
Both games will air via iWant.
San Beda outlasted Jose Rizal University, 25-17, 22-25, 25-27, 25-14, 15-6, last Saturday to open its campaign on a high note.
Veterans Cesca Racraquin and Nieza Viray, who had 24 and 21 points, respectively, the last time out, are again expected to lead the Lady Red Spikers’ drive to climb at second spot to tie defending three-time champion Arellano University (2-0).
The Lady Stags, on the other hand, hope to arrest a two-game slide. SSC-R is winless in two games tied with Emilio Aguinaldo College and LPU.
Meanwhile, the Lady Altas try to add another win in their card and break off from a four-way tie at 1-1 with Jose Rizal University, Letran and Mapua University.
Perpetual defeated the SSC-R in four sets last Saturday.
In men’s play, Perpetual will take on LPU at 10:00 a.m. while San Beda and SSC-R clash at 3:30 p.m.
Scheduled in the juniors’ division are the 8:30 a.m. encounter of defending five-time champion Perpetual and LPU while San Beda and SSC-R will close the playdate at 5:00 p.m.
