Ateneo gets its Adamson rematch as top two teams face off
Despite locking up the number 1 seed, Ateneo is out for revenge as Adamson is the only team to tarnish the Blue Eagles' 12-1 record.

Even with an impressive 9-3 record, the Adamson Soaring Falcons are still in trouble of not securing a twice-to-beat advantage in the Final Four.

And the first step to get that bonus is trying to stop the rampage of a very focused defending champion Ateneo.

The Blue Eagles get their rematch against the Soaring Falcons as the top two teams face each other off in the UAAP Season 78 men's volleyball tournament at the Mall of Asia Arena Sunday.

Despite locking up the number 1 seed, Ateneo is out for revenge as Adamson is the only team to tarnish the Blue Eagles' 12-1 record.

Meanwhile, the Soaring Falcons need to make sure they sweep their last to games to get the number 2 spot.

If Adamson splits, a virtual best-of-three series will start between the Falcons and the NU Bulldogs.

The San Marcelino-based squad sure wouldn't want a two-game slide and a twice-to-beat disadvantge against the Bulldogs.

Which makes this game all the more important for both teams.

Gametime is set at 10 a.m. The match will air live on ABS-CBN Sports+Action HD SkyCable channel 166 and http://sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/uaap.
