University of Sto. Tomas guns for the first Final Four berth.
Still perfect University of Sto. Tomas shoots for the first Final Four berth in a showdown with University of the Philippines Sunday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference men’s division at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
The Tigers are unbeaten in six matches to keep a firm hold of the solo top spot.
UST is looking to extend its winning streak to seven in the scheduled 11:00 a.m. match after the 9:00 a.m. duel between NCAA Season 93 finalists University of Perpetual Help and Arellano University.
The Tigers are on a roll, winning five of their six matches in straight sets including their last three games.
But the Fighting Maroons are expected to give UST challenge especially with UP coming off back-to-back wins via sweep.
The Maroons sport a 4-2 slate.
Meanwhile, Perpetual will try to notch its second win to remain in contention for a semis seat.
The reigning NCAA champions Altas hold a 1-5 mark while the Chiefs are winless in six outings.
