UAAP Season 81: Tigresses eye bounce back win
Sisi Rondina and the rest of the University of Sto. Tomas Tigresses battle University of the East for a chance to get back on the winning track.

University of Sto. Tomas seeks to get back on the right track in a showdown with University of the East on Saturday in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament at the Big Dome.

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.

The Tigresses suffered a four-set loss to three-time defending champion De La Salle University last week to slide to a three-way tie at third to fifth with 6-4 win-loss slate alongside University of the Philippines and Far Eastern University, who are all in the thick of the race for a spot in the Final Four.

UST beat UE, 25-18, 25-14, 25-20, in the first round.

The Lady Warriors are in a precarious spot at 2-8 slate and another defeat will formally boot out UE from the semis race.

UE is coming off sorry back-to-back losses at the hands of the Lady Tamaraws and Lady Maroons.
