Lady Tams look to push Ateneo to Game 3

Ateneo shoots for the finals but FEU is out to extend this series to a game 3.
Fresh from an impressive victory in Game 1, a confident Ateneo de Manila University squad is looking to complete an upset of FEU as the 13th V-League Collegiate Conference semifinals continue Wednesday at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig.
The Lady Eagles swept the top-seeded Lady Tamaraws last Monday to take a 1-0 lead in the Final Four matchup and the girls from Katipunan are looking to pounce on the opportunity as FEU star Bernadeth Pons remains questionable to see action.
Pons suffered a freak injury after the warmups in game 1 and missed the entire contest.
Team captain Michelle Morente, Ana Gopico, and Kim Gequillana are once again expected to lead Ateneo as the Lady Eagles look to make their first final without Alyssa Valdez.
With Pons' status likely to be a game day decision, FEU will have to bank on Toni Rose Basas, Remy Palma, and Heather Guino-o to force a sudden death game 3.
Game 2 of the Ateneo-FEU matchup is set at 6:00 p.m. and will be available on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD channel 166 on SkyCable as well as on sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/vleague for livestreaming.
