National University and Adamson University clash in a crucial rematch that will dictate their campaign in the race for a Final Four berth.
Skidding National University and Adamson University face off in an all-important match Wednesday in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Both in the thick of the race for a Final Four spot, expect an exciting action when the Lady Bulldogs and Lady Falcons meet at center court in their scheduled 4:00 p.m. duel.
The match 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.
After a topping the opening round with only one loss, the Lady Bulldogs are now skidding after two matches in the second half of the eliminations and are yet to win a set.
NU was swept by two-time defending champion De La Salle University to open the second round before suffering a 22-25, 16-25, 17-25, defeat at the hands of Ateneo de Manila University Saturday.
The Lady Bulldogs and Lady Eagles are tied at 6-3 win-loss slate.
The Lady Falcons are fresh from a 19-25, 25-11, 16-25, 25-16, 15-12, revenge win over University of the East Sunday.
Adamson is at solo fifth spot with a 4-5 record. The Lady Falcons are looking to avenge a four-set loss to NU in the season opener but might sit out rookie hitter Chiara Permentilla for the second straight game after sustaining a left ankle sprain last week.
