Bernadeth Pons and the rest of the Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws set their sights in securing a Final Four spot.
Far Eastern University goes for the third Final Four berth when the Lady Tamaraws face another semis spot contender in Adamson University on Saturday in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the MOA Arena.
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.
The Lady Tams hold a 7-4 win-loss at the third spot behind semis-bound grand slam-seeking De La Salle University (9-2) and Ateneo de Manila University (9-3).
A win by FEU will give the Morayta-based squad a fourth straight semis appearance and will boost its chance to vie for a twice-to-beat advantage.
The Lady Tams are fresh off a four set win over University of the Philippines, 21-25, 25-16, 25-20, 25-22, before the Holy Week break. FEU is looking to avenge its five-set first round loss to the Lady Falcons last February 10.
Adamson holds a 5-6 card behind slumping National University (6-6) and is coming off a tough 26-24, 19-25, 25-21, 24-26, 12-15, defeat at the hands of Ateneo before a long layoff.
Another loss will put the Lady Falcons in a precarious position in the race for a spot in the Final Four.
