Far Eastern University sets its sights on closing the prelims with a perfect card.
UAAP powerhouse and unbeaten teams Far Eastern University and University of the Philippines collide to complete a sweep of Group B preliminary round of the 13th V-League Collegiate Conference at The Arena in San Juan City on Saturday.
The Lady Tamaraws crushed their first three assignments with relative ease while the Lady Maroons needed to survive a deciding set in their last outing to share the lead with FEU.
The 4:00 p.m. match of the quarterfinals-bound squads will give the winner a clean 2-0 carryover record in the next round.
The game will air live over ABS-CBN Sports+Action Channel 23, ABS-CBN Sports+Action HD Channel 166 and via livestream on sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/vleague.
FEU defeated another quarterfinals qualifier University of Sto. Tomas, 25-14, 25-18, 25-23, last Wednesday.
While the Lady Tams breezed past the Tigresses, UP went through the proverbial eye of the needle to get past UST, 25-19, 13-25, 25-23, 16-25, 15-6, last week.
The Lady Tams will bank on their heavy-hitters Bernadeth Pons, Toni Basas, Remy Palma and Jerili Malabanan against the Lady Maroons’ Isa Molde, Justine Dorog, Nicole Tiamzon, and Kathy Bersola.
