BanKo shoots for a repeat over ChocoMucho.
BanKo hunts for another win to boost its bid for a Final Four spot but the Perlas Spikers are sure to face tough resistance from ChocoMucho in their Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference elims rematch Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Action begins at 6:00 p.m. and will air live on SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream.
The race for the remaining three semis seats is now tighter than ever with six teams still in thick of the race to join unbeaten defending champion Creamline in the next round.
BanKo currently sits at third spot with an 8-5 win-loss record and is on a two-game winning streak.
The Perlas Spikers seek to duplicate their sweep of the Flying Titans in the first round.
ChocoMucho, which saw its four-game win streak snapped in a straight sets loss to Creamline Saturday in Iloilo, carries a 6-7 slate and is in dire need of a win to keep its slim Final Four hopes alive.
Another loss will put the Flying Titans, who are now feeling the repercussions of its long losing slump in the first round, on the brink of elimination.
