PVL: Lady Maroons zero in on last semis seat
University of the Philippines tries to formalize its entry in the Final Four.

University of the Philippines will try to avoid the complications of a playoff as the Lady Maroons look to formalize their entry in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference Final Four.

Sporting a 3-3 win-loss card and with two other teams vying for the last semifinals seat, UP can clinch the berth with a win over San Beda University on Sunday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air via livestream.

UP is coming off a five-set loss to Far Eastern University a week ago.

The Lady Red Spikers hold a 2-4 slate and can still force a playoff for the last semis ticket with a win. But San Beda must take the victory in three or four sets to earn a favorable quotient.

In case of a three-way tie at 3-4, the two teams with better quotients will battle in a playoff on Wednesday.
