National University looks to get back on the winning track.
National University’s character will be tested Sunday when the Lady Bulldogs try to recover after absorbing their first loss of the season in a showdown with a very confident University of the Philippines in the 80th 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, LIGA on SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD on SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream.
The Lady Bulldogs saw their five-game winning streak snapped by Far Eastern University, 22-25, 27-25, 13-25, 20-25, last Wednesday.
While NU is hopes to rebound from a sorry loss, the Lady Maroons want to spark a winning run and improve their 2-4 win-loss record.
UP arrested a four-game slide with a 31-33, 25-23, 25-16, 25-12 win over University of Sto. Tomas on Wednesday.
Tots Carlos, who scored 32 the last time out, Isa Molde, Marist Layug and Marian Buitre will carry the fight for the Diliman-based squad against NU’s 6-foot-5 star Jaja Santiago, Aiko Urdas, Risa Sato, setter Jasmine Nabor and Jorelle Singh.
