Adamson University tries to duplicate its first round win over University of the Philippines to get back on the winning track.
Adamson University and University of the Philippines look to turn their Final Four bids around when they open their respective campaigns in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament second round elimination at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan on Saturday.
Game time 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.
Both teams are coming off sorry losses to close the first round.
After a stunning win over two-time defending champion De La Salle University, the Lady Falcons absorbed a shocking, 22-25, 25-22, 25-14, 20-25, 13-15, loss to University of the East last week at the close of the opening round.
Despite its loss, Adamson remains within striking distance of the Top 4 with a 3-4 win-loss record.
The Lady Falcons eye to make a repeat of their 25-9, 27-25, 25-20, victory over the Lady Maroons last Valentine’s Day.
UP holds a 2-5 slate with all of its losses coming off straight sets including a 23-25, 23-25, 17-25, beating at the hands of league-leading National University last week.
