Reigning champion Cignal battles winless PLDT on Sunday.
Defending champion Cignal searches for its second straight win when the HD Spikers meet listless PLDT Home Fibr Sunday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference men’s division at the Batangas City Sports Coliseum.
Game time is at 10:00 a.m. and will air live via livestream.
Behind five-time UAAP men’s volleyball Most Valuable Player Marck Espejo’s 28 points, the HD Spikers opened their title defense with a 25-23, 20-25, 25-23, 25-21 win over Vice Co. last Wednesday.
Instituto Estetico Manila leads the field with a 2-0 win-loss card.
Aside from Espejo, Cignal will also bank on former Ateneo de Manila University stars Ysay Marasigan, Rex Intal and setter Ish Polvorosa.
Meanwhile, the Ultra Fast Hitters are winless in two outings – both losses coming off sorry five-set matches against Philippine Air Force and IEM.
