Lady Maroons, Lady Chiefs contest last semis spot
University of the Philippines challenges Arellano University for the last semifinals berth in Group B.
Arellano University and University of the Philippines dispute the last Final Four spot in Group B of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan on Saturday.
Game time is at 1:00 p.m. and will air via livestream.
The Lady Chiefs and Lady Maroons are tied at second to third with 3-1 win-loss records behind the unbeaten and semifinals-bound Adamson University Lady Falcons.
UP is on a hot three-game winning streak after absorbing a five-set opening day loss to the Lady Falcons.
With Diana Carlos and Isa Molde leading the way, the Lady Maroons eliminated San Beda College, 25-16, 25-19, 25-20, in the semis race last week.
The NCAA champion Arellano U, on the other hand, scored a 25-16, 25-15, 25-18, bounce back win over Technological Institute of the Philippines last Sept. 18 sans head coach Obet Javier, who underwent an operation to remove his gallstones.
The match will be a huge test for the Lady Chiefs after losing in straight sets to another UAAP team in Adamson two matches ago.
