National University will bank on setter Jasmine Nabor on orchestrating its offense against Jose Rizal University.
Unbeaten National University marches into battle against listless Jose Rizal University with a mission to secure at least a playoff for a semis seat in Group A of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan Monday.
Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166 and via livestream.
The Lady Bulldogs sport an immaculate 3-0 win-loss record for the solo lead and another win will push the Jaja Santiago-led squad closer to a Final Four seat.
NU is coming off a 10-day layoff since bringing down Far Eastern University, 22-25, 28-26, 29-27, 25-22, last September 16.
Aside from 6-foot-5 Santiago, the Lady Bulldogs parades a solid lineup with veterans Aiko Urdas, Risa Sato, Jorelle Singh and ace setter Jasmine Nabor.
NU enjoys a huge advantage against the smaller Lady Bombers, who are yet to taste victory after three outings.
JRU saw action last September 13 in a 20-25, 26-24, 13-25, 22-25, defeat at the hands of Lyceum of the Philippines University.
