University of the Philippines is out to finish off Adamson University to clinch a Finals berth.
University of the Philippines looks to ride the momentum of its huge win in the Final Four series opener to finish off Adamson University Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air via livestream.
The Lady Maroons snapped the Lady Falcons’ unbeaten streak with a 24-26, 25-19, 25-22, 25-20, victory in Game 1 of the best-of-three series last Wednesday.
Marian Buitre starred in UP’s win and is expected to deliver the same performance as the Lady Maroons gun for a breakthrough championship stint.
Aside from Buitre, UP coach Godfrey Okumu will also pin his hopes on Isa Molde, Marist Layug, Aie Gannaban and sophomore Roselyn Rosier.
But the Lady Falcons want to write a different script and force a series decider on Sunday.
Bernadette Flora, Eli Soyud and Le-Anne Perez will lead the charge for the Air Padda-mentored squad.
