Ateneo de Manila University eyes a share of the top spot.
Ateneo de Manila University seeks to take a share of the lead in a faceoff with University of the East on Sunday in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament at the Big Dome.
Opening serve is at 2:0 p.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 well-rested Lady Eagles parade a 2-1 win-loss record and are currently a win behind league-leading three-time defending champion De La Salle University and University of the Philippines, who both sport a 3-1 slate.
Ateneo is on a two-game winning roll after defeating University of Sto. Tomas and Far Eastern University, which the Lady Eagles defeated in a come-from-behind five-set win last week.
They will take on a Lady Warriors side fresh from claiming four-set victory over listless Adamson University last Wednesday.
UE holds a 1-2 slate tied with National University.
