UAAP Season 81: FEU eyes solo lead
Far Eastern University seeks its fourth straight victory and a firm grip of the solo lead.

Unbeaten Far Eastern University gets another litmus test on Saturday in a showdown with surging University of Sto. Tomas in the UAAP Season 81 men’s volleyball tournament at the Big Dome.

Action begins at 8:00 a.m. and 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 Tamaraws parade a perfect 3-0 win-loss record in a share of the top spot with Adamson University.   

FEU is coming off a five-set win over Ateneo de Manila University last week behind Jude Garcia, Richard Solis, JP Bugaoan and setter Owen Suarez.

But the Tams are sure find a tough match against the Tigers, who are on a two-game winning streak after hurdling the Blue Eagles and University of the Philippines.

UST will pin its hopes on its power-hitting duo of Joshua Umandal and Manuel Medina.

Meanwhile, winless teams UP and De La Salle University meet at 10:00 a.m.

The Fighting Maroons and Green Spikers are both winless in three outings.
