All eyes are set on University of the Philippines rookie Isa Molde (no. 10) when the Lady Maroons face the Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws.
University of the Philippines hopes to begin a winning streak on Sunday when the Lady Maroons challenge the well-rested Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws in the 78th UAAP women's volleyball tournament at the MOA Arena.
Brushing off the Adamson Lady Falcons in four sets last Wednesday, UP wants to ride its momentum in the 4:00 p.m. collision that will air live over ABS-CBN Sports+Action Channel 23, ABS-CBN Sports+Action HD Channel 166 and via livestream at sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/uaap.
UP and FEU share identical 2-2 win-loss records.
The Lady Maroons found a new hero in rookie Isa Molde in their 26-24, 25-27, 25-20, 25-19, drubbing of the Lady Falcons.
Molde pumped in 23 points from 18 kills, three kill blocks and a pair of service aces she spiked with 11 digs in the Diliman-based squad’s last action.
Aside from Molde, veterans Kathy Bersola, Nicole Tiamzon and other new guns Justine Dorog and Diana Carlos are expected to carry the fight for the Lady Maroons.
The Lady Tams are coming off a weeklong layoff after putting down the University of Sto. Tomas Tigresses, 25-22, 25-18, 15-25, 25-23, behind Toni Basas and Remy Palma, who scored 19 and 12 points respectively.
