Adamson University and University of Sto. Tomas rekindle rivalry in battle for third.
School pride will be at stake when Adamson University and University of Sto. Tomas take center court Sunday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference battle for third best-of-three series opener at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
After seeing their title hopes dashed by their respective lower seeded opponents in the semifinals, the Lady Falcons and Tigresses look to salvage a podium finish.
The match will begin at 4:30 p.m. and will air via livestream. Replay of the game will air at 8:30 p.m. at ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23 and ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166.
Adamson wants to prove that their elims win over UST is no fluke as the Lady Falcons eye a repeat over the Tigresses.
But UST will have its top rookie Eya Laure, who skipped their first meeting with Adamson due to a shoulder injury, back making the match a must-see action.
The Lady Falcons swept the elims to take the semis top seed but suffered an upset at the hands of University of the Philippines to bomb out of the Finals race.
Meanwhile, the Tigresses absorbed a painful semis series loss to Far Eastern University as UST squandered a 1-0 lead in the showdown.
