UST battles Adamson in end of season showdown
University of Sto. Tomas and Adamson University duke it out at the close of their campaign.

After falling short in their respective bids to advance in the Final Four, University of Sto. Tomas and Adamson University battle for a graceful exit in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament Saturday at the Blue Eagle gym inside Ateneo de Manila University campus.

Opening serve is at 4:00 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 Falcons sport a 5-8 win-loss record tied with University of the Philippines.

Adamson missed the Final Four cut for the fourth straight year after dropping as sorry 21-25, 15-25, 25-22, 18-25, loss to two-time defending champion De La Salle University last Wednesday.

The Tigresses, on the other hand, carry a 4-9 card in a dismal season.

UST was swept by the Lady Spikers, 23-25, 23-25, 22-25, last week as the Tigresses failed to make a return stint in the semis.

The Espana-based squad are out to duplicate its straight set win over Adamson in the first round.
