Sisi Rondina of University of Sto. Tomas will try to rally the Tigresses back in the win column.
Coming off painful setbacks, University of Sto. Tomas and University of the Philippines clash to get back on the winning track Wednesday in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The Tigresses are at sixth spot with a 2-3 win loss slate. UST is coming off a sorry, 19-25, 25-14, 19-25, 26-28, defeat to unbeaten National University last Sunday.
The Lady Maroons are on a four-game slide after opening their campaign with a five-set victory over winless team University of the East for a 1-4 slate. The Diliman-based squad lost all of their four matches in straight sets.
UP was swept by Atendeo de Manila University, 20-25, 22-25, 26-28, also last Sunday.
UST will rely on high-scoring hitter Sisi Rondina, who scored 25 points the last time out, Carla Sandoval, Tin Franciso and Dimdim Pacres against the UP’s dynamic duo Isa Molde and Tots Carlos.
