University of the Philippines attempts to stop a two-game bleeding in a showdown with Adamson University.
University of the Philippines tries to arrest a two-game slide on Sunday against an equally dangerous Adamson University side in their UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament end of first round battle at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
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.
After a promising start, the Lady Maroons went on a nosedive after absorbing back-to-back defeats including a heartbreaking five-set loss to National University last Wednesday.
The stinging loss, which saw UP squander a 14-10 lead in the deciding frame, pulled the Lady Maroons outside of the Top 4 for a 3-3 win-loss card at fifth spot.
Meanwhile, the Lady Falcons are tied with University of the East with 1-5 card.
Adamson is coming off a four-set loss to league-leading Ateneo de Manila University last Wednesday.
