Adamson University is out to extend its winning streak to three and join Far Eastern University on top of the standings.
Soaring Adamson University looks to take a share of the lead on Wednesday in a faceoff with University of the East in the UAAP Season 81 men’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Opening serve is at 10:00 a.m. after the 8:00 tussle between National University and De La Salle University. Both matches will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream.
The Falcons hurdled their first two assignments to occupy solo second place behind idle Far Eastern University (3-0).
Paolo Pablico has been consistent for Adamson, averaging 20.5 points per game. The graduating team captain led the way in the Falcons’ four-set win over the Green Spikers last Saturday.
Pablico will have George Labang, Mark Alvarez and Leo Miranda as backup against the Red Warriors, who are seeking a return in the win column.
UE absorbed the ire of the Bulldogs last Saturday, bowing in straight sets for a 1-1 slate tied with its tormentors.
DLSU is winless in two outings.
