Inspired University of Sto. Tomas is on the prowl for its second straight win.
University of Sto. Tomas hopes to ride the crest of its huge upset win from its previous game when it battles National University in the UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan Saturday.
Game time 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 SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream.
The Tigresses will try to score their first back-to-back wins of the season and fittingly follow up their dominating sweep of three-time defending champion De La Salle University despite playing without injured hitter Milena Alessandrini, who could be out for the season after suffering a harrowing left knee injury.
UST, which is tied with the Lady Spikers with a 3-2 win-loss slate, will be led by the trio of Sisi Rondina, Eya Laure and Dimdim Pacres against the young Lady Bulldogs.
NU sports a 1-3 card tied with Adamson University and University of the East.
The Lady Bulldogs are coming off back-to-back losses at the hands of DLSU and Adamson U.
