Sisi Rondina and University of Sto. Tomas fight to keep their fading semis campaign afloat.
University of Sto. Tomes takes a shot to salvage its already flickering Final Four campaign in a crucial match against University of the Philippines Saturday in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
The Tigresses are on the brink of elimination after suffering five straight losses for a 2-7 win-loss record.
Another defeat in the 2:00 p.m. match that 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 will put UST’ neck on the chopping block in the Final Four race.
UST’s losing woes continued when it suffered a 21-25, 21-25, 23-25, defeat at the hands of Far Eastern University.
The Lady Maroons, who are down with a 3-6 slate and are on a precarious spot in the semis race, are coming off a 15-25, 19-25, 19-25, loss to two-time defending champion De La Salle University.
UP defeated the Tigresses in four sets in their first meeting.
