National University and University of the East clash for a return in the win column.
Rookie-laden National University and University of the East seek a fresh start Wednesday at the start of the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament second round at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Game time is at 2:00 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.
Both teams finished the first round on a sour note with the Lady Bulldogs bowing down to an experienced and streaking Ateneo de Manila while the Lady Warriors are down with a four-game slump.
NU is at solo second spot with a 2-5 win-loss record. The Lady Bulldogs looking to make a repeat of its 25-19, 25-23, 25-19, sweep of UE in their first meeting.
The Lady Warriors, on the other hand, are at the bottom of the standings with a 1-6 mark tied with Adamson University, the only team that they had defeated so far in the contest.
Top rookies Princess Robles, Ivy Lacsina, libero Jennifer Nierva and veterans Audrey Paran and Roselyn Doria will lead the charge of the Lady Bulldogs against seasoned UE players Judith Abil, Seth Rodriguez, Me-Anne Mendrez and prized libero Kath Arado.
