National University and University of the East meet once again.
National University hopes to boost its Final Four bid Sunday in a rematch with the also-ran University of the East Lady Warriors in the 79th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Opening serve is at 2:00 p.m. and will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166 and via livestream.
With league-leading Ateneo de Manila already in the Final Four, only three semifinals seats remain up for grabs for five teams still in contention.
The Lady Bulldogs are in fifth to sixth spot with 5-4 win-loss record tied with University of the Philippines.
NU, which is coming off a 21-25, 11-25, 25-15, 12-25 defeat at the hands of the defending champions De La Salle University a week ago, defeated UE in four sets in their first meeting losing the opening frame before taking the next three.
The Lady Warriors are on a two-game losing skid after closing the first round with a win over Adamson for a 1-8 slate at seventh place.
UE is absorbed a 14-25, 25-18, 15-25, 10-25, loss against the Lady Maroons last Wednesday.
