UAAP Season 81: Lady Eagles gun for Final Four twice-to-beat advantage

Ateneo de Manila University seeks to clinch a Final Four twice-to-beat advantage and to return in the win column.
Denied the last time, Ateneo de Manila University tries one more time to secure the first Final Four twice-to-beat advantage against skidding Adamson University on Wednesday in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament 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.
The Lady Eagles get another chance to pocket the semis bonus after Ateneo's first attempt was spoiled by archrival four-peat-seeking De La Salle University, 17-25, 13-25, 23-25, last April 13 before the league went on a Holy Week break.
Ateneo also seeks to get back on the winning track after the Lady Spikers snapped the Lady Eagles’ 10-game winning streak in dominating fashion. The Katipunan-based squad remains at the top spot with a 10-2 win-loss record.
If Ateneo defeats Adamson and University of the East (April 28), the Lady Eagles will secure the no. 1 seed in the Final Four and will battle the fourth ranked team.
But the Lady Falcons will try to spoil that and end an eight-game losing skid.
Adamson is at the bottom with a 1-11 record.
