University of the East and University of the Philippines clash with hopes of ending their season with a win.
Graduating hitter Shaya Adorador hopes to put on a good show in her final game wearing a University of the East jersey when the Lady Warriors face University of the Philippines Saturday in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the Blue Eagle gym inside Ateneo de Manila University campus.
The duel begins 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.
Adorador and the rest of the Lady Warriors are looking to end their season on a high note and add another win in their 2-11 card.
UE is out to arrest a five-game losing slump and a to avenge its 19-25, 13-25, 25-21, 25-16, 8-15 loss to the Lady Maroons in their first round opening day meeting.
But UP is expected to go all-out to salvage some pride and end their season on a roll.
The Lady Maroons are riding the crest of their back-to-back straight set wins including a 28-26, 25-23, 26-24, upset over Ateneo de Manila University a week ago.
UP holds a 5-8 slate tied with Adamson University but for the second straight year failed to advance in the semis after National Universityh earned its seventh win in 13 games to claim the last Final Four seat.
