2 p.m. – NU vs UST
4 p.m. – Ateneo vs Arellano
Ateneo and Arellano slug it out it out today in a key match-up between Group A leaders even as National U and University of Santo Tomas collide in Group B action in an explosive twinbill marking Week 2 of the Shakey’s V-League Season 11 First Conference at The Arena in San Juan yesterday.
The Lady Eagles needed four sets to topple the Adamson Lady Falcons in last week’s inaugurals of the country’s premier women’s volley league sponsored by Shakey’s but the reigning UAAP champions expect a tougher outing against the Lady Chiefs, who launched their bid with an impressive three-set romp over the Southwestern U tossers last Thursday.
Gametime is at 4 p.m. with the winner seizing the early lead in Group A of the league where it all started and the inside track in the quarterfinals, this being a single round robin elims among two groups, thus making each game crucial.
Led by Cristine Joy Rosario and Danna Henson, the Lady Chiefs trounced the Lady Cobras, 25-15, 25-17, 25-19, to prime themselves up against the fancied Lady Eagles, led by Alyssa Valdez.
