Streaking Ateneo de Manila University is out to collect its third straight win in a collision course with upset-seeking University of the East.
Ateneo de Manila University hunts for its third straight win and a step closer to a Final Four berth in a duel with University of the East Wednesday in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
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.
After closing the first round with a four-set loss against grand slam-seeking De La Salle University, the Lady Eagles are now on a roll.
The Loyola-based squad exacted revenge on their first round tormentors Far Eastern University and National University in straight sets.
Ateneo’s last victim were the Lady Bulldogs, 25-22, 25-16, 25-17, last Saturday as the Lady Eagles tied NU with 6-3 win-loss record.
The Lady Eagles are looking to make a repeat over the Lady Warriors, who are coming off a 25-19, 11-25, 25-16, 16-25, 12-15, loss to Adamson University Sunday that saw their two-game win streak snapped.
UE holds a 2-7 slate at the bottom of the standings.
